AABA format again, typical for the blues. But this blues lyric ends up positive. Wrote it years ago, haven’t changed it much. CMA

One He Holds
______________AABA
A1:
The sunshine on his face
Never feeling like it could
The rainbow’s out of place
Never ending where it should
He searches for the truth within the light
But doesn’t see who’s stands by him outright

A2:
The balance of his life
Never seems to come out true
The echoes of his strife
Always seem to come anew
He searches for the path he feels is right
But doesn’t see who holds him in the night

Bridge:
Will he learn to see the truth that makes his fate
Will he wake to see the love within his mate

A3:
The patterns of his days
Sometimes showing many signs
The words dance on the waves
Sometimes making wondrous rhymes
His searches have returned to him twofold
He sees the heart within the one he holds

(Instrumental bridge)

A3:
The patterns of his days
Sometimes showing many signs
The words dance on the waves
Sometimes making wondrous rhymes
His searches have returned to him twofold
He sees the heart within the one he holds

Nice blues tune. Played it with the new guitar std 12 bar blues... sounded great. I like this a lot. Very nice job.

Wow Bunny, I’d love to hear it! I wrote it to fit a simple blues melody and you confirmed my intent. Thanks.

Charles
