Title: Let it flow (Folk Ballad - Final)
Lyrics Copyright © 2019 - 2022 Joe Givens (BMI)

{Acoustic Guitar Intro}


{V1}

Can you write great songs.. that make the angels sing? 11
Can you com-bine sweet words and melodies? 11
Will your music bring tears.. or will it bring great joy? 12
While it lives on for e-tern-ity? 9

Let each word you write come from deep in your heart.. 11
As I'm sure all good song-writ-ers know 9
Sharing how you feel.. sets the great apart 11
When your soul just lets the music flow 9

If you want to write a great song let it flow! 12


{CHORUS 1}

Let it flow from your mind.. 6
Let it flow from your heart.. 6
Let it flow from ev'ry part of you. 9

Let the music unwind.. 6
And set itself apart 6
Taking on its own life fresh and new. 9


{Verse 2}

Can you write great songs.. that make the angels cry? 11
In jubil-la-tion and ring out har-mo-nies? 11
Will your music in-spire.. artists to create.. 12
Great art works for all the world to see? 9

Look deep down in that hidden part of your mind.. 11
To unlock your cre-a-tivity.. 9
Brush those cobwebs aside.. and soon you may find.. 11
The treasure chest of ideas you seek.. 9

If you're needing great ideas.. let them flow! 11


{Chorus 2}

Let it flow from your dreams 6
Let it flow like a stream.. 6
Let it flow from the core of your soul 9

Let your melody flow.. 6
And then soon you will know.. 6
A greatness that never will grow old! 9


{Verse 3}

If you write songs.. that make angels cry and sing.. 11
Spreading joy and love to those you may meet.. 11
With laughter and cheer.. and joy throughout the years.. 12
Share music from your soul.. set it free.. 9

{Chorus 3}

Let it flow through their minds.. 6
Let it flow through their hearts.. 6
Let it flow and refresh and renew.. 9

Your music will live on.. 6
Long after we are gone.. 6
It happens.. because you let it flow.. 9
Want your music to live for-e-ver? Let it flow! 12


{Instrumental Outro}

{END}

Not bad Joe. You might consider starting with the chorus on this one in order to establish "let it flow" as the main theme. Right now it starts with songwriting and the "let it flow" phrase seems to be an extension of that. Then the change to preserving nature feels a bit arbitrary to me.

I hadn't thought of that. I'll give it a whirl. Already been advised to save the nature part for another song. Thanks

Joe, can’t say I know folk music but the message seems pretty clear and concise.

Very good! Do you have music to go with it now?

I do, but seeing if my partner can come up with something even better. Am now connected with one of Herman's Hermits former band members. Man, never thought I'd see this project anywhere close to finished.
