Well, sometimes you will get on a music forum (not this one) and a person will say something really oddball, and all you can do is write a song.

This has about 42 Real Tracks in it, please don't make me list each one. Also, I am playing some other guitars. Also, I was NOT watching Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story on Netflix for the 40th time in a row when I came up with this idea. Don't even think it.

smile

P.S. Thanks to Floyd for giving some background singing loops and making me/helping me rewrite the bridge so people wouldn't kill me.

Just Plain Folks
By David Snyder

V1

And now that my days
At the forum are done
And I never got a chance to sing
The song that wasn’t sung
I have wonder about those things
I might have done wrong
And how to live my life next time
To write a better song
And how to live my life next time
To write a better song, cause

CH:

We’re just plain folks
It’s all that we can be
We shouldn’t cut one another’s throats
Cause it’s just not neighborly, and it ain’t me
And I shouldn’t put my ego out
For all the world to see
Cause then I’ll start fight a fight and someone will surely come for me
Oh darling can’t you see
It’s all about the good folks, and the plain folks and the old folks
And the young folks , and the smart folks, and the dumb folks
And the downright ordinary down to earth folks
Sometimes you have to forgive and forget
Just as long as you still see
It’s all about the plain folks, and honey…it ain’t nothing…
It ain’t nothing, it’ ain’t nothing
About me

Bridge:

And you might not like how I do things
But sometimes I gotta let it out
I was born so country girl
Sometimes I just gotta shout, ‘cause
(go ahead and sing it son, tell him the King sent ya)

CH:

We’re just plain folks
It’s all that we can be
We shouldn’t cut one another’s throats
Cause it’s just not neighborly, and it ain’t me
And I shouldn’t put my ego out
For all the world to see
Cause then I’ll start fight a fight and someone will surely come for me
Oh darling can’t you see
It’s all about the good folks, and the plain folks and the old folks
And the young folks, and the smart folks, and the dumb folks
And the downright ordinary down to earth folks
Sometimes you have to forgive and forget
Just as long as you still see
It’s all about the just plain folks, and honey…it ain’t nothing…
It ain’t nothing, it’ ain’t nothing
About me, oh naw girl

Epic Anthem Rideout for All My Peeps

It’s not about me, oh no, it’s not about me,
Oh honey, Let it Be, Let it Be now
Set the Free Bird Free
can’t you see, just set me free,
Just let it be, set the freebird free,
I was blind but now I see, oh honey it’s not about me
Set the free bird free
And let it be
Can’t you see, it’s not about me
Set the free bird free
Set the free bird free now…
Etc.

David,
Some down home therapy going on here- almost in Tater`s territory until you segwayed into the Love Is All You Need kind of ending.
I found it catchy and sure hope it helped!

Robert

"Set the free bird free, " is it?
The usual awesome vocals, with extra credit to one of the best BB backups ever.

Excellent, David! I love your way with words, good writing!

Love the way you build the intensity up at the end, very well done!

And, after reading your song description I'm curious as to what the original bridge was wink

Thanks Ed. Yeah, I'm gonna set the free bird free man!! I have no idea if Ancestry.com will tell me I am a country bumpkin, but I have a sneaky feeling it will.

Thanks Samuel.

That line was kinda self referential and pointed at myself, so you can ignore it. I would put you in the smart people group.

Good luck with FAWM country brother!!!

Thanks Dave!!

Well, I guess the original bridge is going the grave with Floyd Jane.

He is my musical counselor and adviser, and he essentially told me, in so many words, that while I may be the biggest country bumpkin he has ever met, there are just certain things you can't say in a forum song (not this forum mind you) unless you want the town mob to show up at your house.

So, I have taken his advice before, and I took it again this time. He is a wise man, that Floyd Jane he is.

I know discretion is the better part of valor, Dave, but
just for grins, would you drop a hint on the topics
subject of Floyd's caution? Maybe there is a
way of putting it. If you don't. it will be perfectly
understandable.

What a tune, David! The spirit of Bob Dylan is strong in this one. Your vocal performance sounds so effortless in this one - it just flows so well with the chosen arrangement, and the emphasis you put on your words makes them really stick in your head. At least, that's what I found smile Overall, just a strong tune that is the perfect level of catchiness.

Thanks so much for sharing - you should be proud of this one!

Hi David

Am in awe of the way lyrics and musical ideas flow from your brain.
You are fearless man but i hope you don't go too far one day and

"then I’ll start a fight and someone will surely come for me"

Scary line.

Keep inspiring us.
Cheers.
