I may have posted this song before (not sure), but I am sharing this because something made me really laugh.

Just seconds before I was going to hop on a mentoring call with NSAI today (Nashville Songwriters) I saw I had a NSAI eval come in for a song I wrote as a joke for a sync licensing possibility elsewhere. I never gave it a second thought--until I got the best review I have ever received from Nashville. For old school redneck. This is a snippet:

"LYRICS: I love how you open the song! Think you have a really good bar drinking old country song and it’s amazing.

MELODY: I think this would be great for sync. I think there is a market for this! I miss this kind of country music on the radio and I wish it would come back!"

Hmmmm. Floyd, Herb, and the rest of the gang, put your boots back on boys and girls. We have some tracks to cut on the four track. Hope y'all still remember your Nashville numbers. Gas 'er up. I'm swinging by your house in a minute Floyd. Make sure your wife understands.

A Wanted Man

By David Snyder

V1

Well I used to have myself a lot of women
'Til I found out that my name had got round
It seems the girls don’t like
Sharing all that much
Now they run me out of
Thirteen dozen towns, and

CH

They don’t want me in Oklahoma
Alabama or North Dakota
no one cares at all
exactly where I am
Oh I wish that I was still
The King of the Hill
Yes I wish that I was still
A wanted man

V2

One day you know I might end up in prison
For stealin’ hearts and running from the law
But when that warden comes
And shows to my cell
I’ll swear I loved
Everything I saw, and

CH

They don’t want me in California
Tennessee or Minnesota
no one cares at all
exactly where I am
Oh I wish that I was still
The King of the Hill
Yes I wish that I was still
A wanted man
Inst.

CH

They don’t want me in Carolina
Arizona, or Indiana
no one cares at all
exactly where I am
Oh I wish that I was still
The King of the Hill
Yes I wish that I was still
A wanted man
Yes I wish that I was still
A wanted man
Yes I wish that I was still
A wanted man

I'm fairly certain I've heard this.

      Edit: Ooops. Forgot to mention that's a good thing, because it's a memorable and funny write, and I'm &^%$ when to remembering stuff.

Hope you make a pile of money on this! wink

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

What a fun lyric, David.
A friend and I wrote one with the same title and idea some years ago but more in a JC style.
Best of luck with it.
