Hi all.
I've gone folky mode for this one.

Loves me. Loves me not ©2021 Vic Arnold

V1
I know a woman from up the line.
We meet up now and again.
Warms me up like summer shine.
Then cools me down like winter rain.
Sugar sweet and twice as fair.
Like a willow, bends and sways.
There's no one like her anywhere.
Seems no method in her ways.
Ch.
But she loves me.
Sometimes she loves me not.
Sometimes cold, sometimes hot.
Blows through my door like a hurricane,
through my mind then out again.
V2
Has her thoughts set on her dreams,
travelling down her winding road.
I help her find the way it seems.
Happy just to share the load.
One day maybe, don't know when,
from her misty far off place,
she'll come back to my arms again.
Spend some time in my embrace.
Ch.
But she loves me.
Sometimes she loves me not.
Sometimes cold, sometimes hot.
Blows through my door like a hurricane,
through my mind then out again.

HI Vic ...

Great to hear another one from you. I've enjoyed your music for many years. A really great song in all respects. Your voice often reminds me of a mix of Johnny Cash and Gordon Lightfoot. In my book, tyherte's nothing wrong with that.

Your folky mode works quite nicely. Best to you ...

Alan

Al! I grew up listening to those two.
Not a bad mix to go for.

Thanks for the support.

Nice one Vic. We enjoyed your vocal and imagery
of the lyric ... very vivid and engaging.

Good arrangement, band and mix too.

PS As Louis Armstrong said, "all music is folk I ain't ever
heard a horse sing."

Nice - I really liked the lyrics.

The bass hitting the "off" beats on the verse as well as the sparse arrangement made it especially interesting to listen to!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks J&B.
The mix was tricky. Acoustic bass is usually very up and down in volume,
