Take Me Along_Country Submission - 07/26/17 06:36 AM

Ok, this is my country submission. smile

Using the Passion Style from Xtra Styles 3. Again, my lovely wife Gayle is singing along with me on this one--we rehearsed it in the mountains then came home and recorded it--old school.

Take Me Along
Performed by David and Gayle Snyder

V1

This girl she goes by many names
You know she never looks the same
She comes in like a hurricane
Then the skies clear up after the rain
Sometimes she’s wearing worn out jeans
She’s never aged always sixteen
She was my first stolen kiss
And she’s the keeper of my dreams
She’s with me through my joy and pain
She’s the one who told me I could change
Just count my blessings and change my strings
Open up my soul and sing
When my heart is broke she says she can fix it
There’s nothing to it, ask her who she is
She just smiles and says

CH:

I’m your music, I’m your music
And I’m just a song, I’m just a song
But you love me, yeah you love me
So no matter where you go
Or what you think you know
take me along, take me along boy
take me along

V2

Some people say she can look strange
‘Cause her hair is wild and she can’t be tamed
And once she sets your heart on fire
You’ll never ever put out those flames
She told me once you don’t want to miss me
Go ahead kiss me
And you will never be the same

CH:

Bridge:

Every morning she says boy
You better get yourself some joy
And don’t you miss this, don’t you miss this
Cause you only get one life
And it goes by at the speed of light
so make the most of it, that’s right

Nice entry there, David. Love that line:
"Just count my blessings and change my strings"
We should all take that advice. Always love reading your lyrics. Your typical excellent production. Keep 'em coming, bro.

Good luck in the contest.
