I wrote something for you. After reading your post again, I am afraid it does not meet all your specifications. Please let me know if you want it posted here or if you can see my private messages. Or I might try again if you ask me to.

Houston is my land of dreams
The future of my plans and schemes
The secret of the town I love
I will tell you people what I’m singing of

Houston your heart is love
The home below the sky above
You’re on the go I have to crow
Houston how I love you so

Each night along the bayou
Music pours for a happy soul
The morning grace on the freeways
The rising sun that cuts away the haze

It’s here she was born and raised
Who keeps me happy and amazed
Our children too they know how true
And so we offer this invite to you

Houston your heart is love
The home below the sky above
You’re on the go I have to crow
Houston how I love you so

Took this off another thread:

Edgar - I've been hitting the guitar with your song -even singing it (in a fashion)
I thought you might be interested in what's come up.

Hope you don't mind me doing this?

These are just basic chord changes (in my version) of your song -
Last chord of each line repeated for 6 beats
I can't write music properly so bare with me
The fancy stuff comes later…




Is there a title btw?


D……………...A…………………......D…....
lost almost drunk in old san luis
D………………………........A…………D…........
somehow i just can't find the border
G……………………A……………….................D........
i hitched i got stranded in the land of ease
D…………………..………….......A………………...….D….........
im walking and asking in english for the border

G……………….....C………………...D…………
one day i was leaving san diego
G………………………....C……………………….......D…........
with my thumb he drove with lightning speed
G…………....C………………….....D……....
we almost died in the high sierra
D…………………….………......A…………………………………........D…....
that car lost its will and stalled in the heat near san luis

G……………..C…………………......D……......
he said i'll pay we'll play in mexico
G………….………......C………………...D……....
a stranger set us on the dusty street
G……………………......C…………….....D……....
it was cerveza for me and my amigo
D……………………..……………......A………..….....D……….....
he vanished in a manner not altogether discreet

D……………....A……………………...D….....
lost almost drunk in old san luis
D…………………………......A………...D……....
somehow i just can't find the border
G……………….....A……………………………......D….....
i hitched i got stranded in the land of ease
D…………………..…………….....A………………......D…....
im walking and asking in english for the border.....

G…………....C.…. ………………….......D…………......
men sit at ease on the wooden walk-way
G……………….………….....C………………...D….......
and one will point his finger to the north
G………..…………....C………………………………......D….......
should i load the lettuce trucks or merely segue
D…………..…………………….……………….............A………………..D……...
because i need to see my momma back home in fort worth

D……………...A……………………....D…...
lost almost drunk in old san luis
D…………………………......A………..D……......
somehow i just can't find the border
G……………….....A……………………………......D…....
i hitched i got stranded in the land of ease
D…………………..………….......A…………………....D…....
im walking and asking in english for the border



I've been singing a last chorus: (as guitar picks up)


D……………...A……………………....D…....
lost almost drunk in old san luis
D…………………………......A………………………......D…….....
somehow i just can't find, I can't find the border
G……………….....A……………………………......D….....
i hitched i got stranded in the land of ease
D…………………..…………….……......A…………….........D…......
Now im walking and asking in english for the border

(guitar thing)

D…………………..…………….……A……………........D…........
im walking and asking in english for the border



I'm really taken with this song, Edgar - but I'm positive it needs to be sung by someone without a south London accent!
Still, I already tried to on a friend and she gave me a kiss and told me to tell you it's 'special'
: ) so thanks…


peace,
Endy

Not really finished with this. Saving it for later.

The working woman and the working man
Greatest heroes since time began
Lend themselves to the grandest plans
With their minds and their calloused hands

They’re the engine makes the nations roll
Without them it all would fold
Fighting for pay and jobs
Against the ilk that robs

The working woman and the working man
Greatest heroes since time began
War winds blow make their stand
Until its time to heal the land

Some think it’s all in vain
Future’s really on the wane
Be vigilant be brave
The future’s yours to save

The working woman and the working man
Greatest heroes since time began

Happy Christmas Rocky

Happy Christmas Rocky
Happy happy Christmas Rocky
Make your wish list Rocky
Favorite bones and chew toys

You’re a busy doggy Rocky
Santa loves to see
Such a happy doggy Rocky
And so do we

Tonight when you slumber Rocky
If you hear sleigh bells on the roof
Don’t bother to wake up Rocky
Santa’s brought gifts for you

So happy Christmas Rocky
Happy happy Christmas Rocky
Happy happy happy Christmas
Happy happy happy Christmas

Love or Misery

“Call me a girl
I’ll call you a boy
Call me a hole
I’ll call you a pole
Look at me
In the light
What you see
Might invite
Misery

Give me your hand
And walk beside me
For I won’t stand
For one to guide me
Look at me
In the light
What you see
Might invite
Misery

I’m just asking like a friend
I’m asking you to bend
Look at me
In the light
What you see
Might Invite
Love or misery

Don’t take just ask
Be it great or small
We’ll weigh the task
I could give it all
Look at me
In the light
What you see
Might invite
Misery

Thanks. Lyrics are ten cents a dozen, these days. Only those receiving the hype gets one anywhere.

@edgarblythe,
People want to be unique
To be different from the rest.
So why is it ‘cause they’re not the same
They think they’re second best?

Whatever!

I’m the perfect me
I’m the perfect me
There is no other substitute
Cause I’m the perfect me

So don’t try to tell me I’ve got to change.
Don’t try to fit me into your mould.
I’m happy just the way I am
I ‘m strong I’m ready I’m bold

I’m the perfect me
I’m the perfect me
There is no other substitute
Cause I’m the perfect me

Don’t need to take years to discover
It’s ok to be who I am.
Won’t be a replica of someone else.
Hey I’m here. I’ll take my stand.

I’m the perfect me
I’m the perfect me
There is no other substitute
Cause I’m the perfect me

Just because I’m not in your shoes
Not mirrored in your eyes
Inside I know we’re made the same
So back off don’t criticize.

I’m the perfect me
I’m the perfect me
There is no other substitute
Cause I’m the perfect me

I accept who I am on the inside
Accept who I am on the out.
Don’t want to be made of plastic
Wanna keep me real so I can shout.

I’m the perfect me
I’m the perfect me
There is no other substitute
Cause I’m the perfect me


All I ever wanted was to have the best for you
All I ever wanted was to see your dreams come true
It’s not about me
It’s not about me
It’s not about my future
It’s your future eternally


INTEGRITY

I’ll keep loose, keep steady
Stay on the right side of life.
Be strong be ready
To defend myself and say why.
When it matters, I’ll keep it simple.
I won’t complicate what I know.
I’ll be myself not a pretender
Then I won’t have to put on a show.

My life’s just starting out.
I’ll leave out the fear and doubt.
Follow the future I dare to see.
I’ll aim for the brightest star.
Wait for my dreams to go far.
Hold fast to my integrity.

I’ll take my time, when I have a plan.
Accept all the help I can get.
When success comes I’ll be ready.
Enjoy my time no regrets.
I’ll ask advice from the people
Who don’t always say what I want to hear.
They’ll be truthful. They’ll be honest.
So, I’ll listen to them without fear.

My life’s just starting out.
I’ll leave out the fear and doubt.
Follow the future I dare to see.
I’ll aim for the brightest star.
Wait for my dreams to go far.
Hold fast to my integrity.

I’ve a right to stay happy.
Focus on the strength that’s inside.
So I’ll smile, whenever I’m alone.
Wear sense of purpose with pride.
I won’t shut out the world outside.
So life won’t always be about me.
I’ll be prepared for the give and take.
To aim for the future I see.

My life’s just starting out.
I’ll leave out the fear and doubt.
Follow the future I dare to see.
I’ll aim for the brightest star.
Wait for my dreams to go far.
Hold fast to my integrity.
















Your cool too)

Just a passing thought.

Lady

If he grab her by the hoo ha
Ought she sock him on the doo da?
If he grab her by the hoo ha
Ought she sock him on the doo da?

Lady likes a moonbeam
Cross the bed late at night
Likes the music when she dancing
Neath revolving red strobe light

Lady and the big man
He gets her all alone
She knows he's not the eggman
Says I must get me on home

If he grab her by the hoo ha
Ought she sock him on the doo da?
If he grab her by the hoo ha
Ought she sock him on the doo da?
