Hi,friends !

I also tried to remix this
Christmas Country song I wrote
back in 2014 but turned out I
had to resing the song from
the sgu file that I still had
but I could not find the solo
I had used earlier so I had
to put in a new one !

I wrote this tune thinking
of all those of you that have to
be far away from home but who may
have the fortune of having a chance
to come home for Christmas.

These are my Christmas and New Year´s
greetings to all of my friends on this
marvelous site !:))

CHRISTMAS ONCE AGAIN III (Music and Words by Norman Wibe)


Once again it´s comin´
the time we´ve waited , waited for so long
it´s here again, it´s Christmas, Christmas time
for a song

And I sing while I´m roamin´
I´m slowly, slowly roamin´, roamin´home
I´ve been away, so far so far away
comin´home to stay

solo

In the sky, the stars are glowin´
they ´re showin´me the way that I should go
it´s Christmas time
and I am bound for home
once again, once again

Merry X-mas and a Happy New Year to
all of you !

Cheers
Dani

While listening to this, I feel like getting a lift in Santa's sledge on the way to my family, watching falling snow and children making snowmen. Nice solo guitar. Merry Christmas, Dani smile

Excellent song Dani.

Very well sung as usual. I like a lot Country style, It's not a mistery and here you have
created a super melody on a beautiful background.

Very nice picture, I think the place is in Finland...

Merry Christmas to you and family.

Sergio

Hello, Dani

Very nice Christmas tune!
Very pleasant vocals and harmonies!
Interlude guitar is also wonderful.
It's a Christmas song, but it's a little beach sound feel.
So I can't think it was delivered from cold Scandinavia in December.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Happy holidays!

Best regards.

Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).
