Smell the Fresh Air © J Hughes

Smell the fresh air of freedom
Smell the fresh air of peace
Smell the fresh air of this great country
The good Lord has given you and me

Many through out this old world
Dream of hope and peace
They want to come to this great country
The good Lord has given you and me

Thank the good Lord
Thank the good Lord
Thank the good Lord we are free
Thank the good Lord
Thank the good Lord
Thank the good Lord for his peace

Smell the fresh air of freedom
Smell the fresh air of peace
Smell the fresh air of this great country
The good Lord has given you and me

Dear Jim...

In my last comment on your last post, "Yes, I Do", I said that I hoped I would hear more of your songs, so thank you putting "Smell the Fresh Air" in to circulation here on the User's Forum!

You vocal track has you sounding like a gentle troubadour wandering the hills and valleys, roads and sidewalks of this country, guitar in hand, crooning your song of peace and freedom to grateful listeners who needed to hear it to freshen their outlook on living on the land that feeds them, houses them, and hopefully gives them something to pass on to future generations. The music is calming and reassuring, too.

Lead the way, sir!

Sincerely,

LOREN

Blueage said it so well "Your vocal track has you sounding like a gentle troubadour wandering the hills and valleys, roads and sidewalks of this country, guitar in hand, crooning your song of peace and freedom..."

Positive with many rays of hope!

Dear Jim,

this song may come along as a sweet li'l tune, but in those few lines you express your humanity. Lots of things happening all around the world these days that might make one lose every hope - your song gently puts the train back onto the rails. And although you're singing about America, this should go for any country in the free world.

Nicely sung, Jim, thanks a lot.

Stefan
