Got it Barry.. The melody is good but the tempo is going to be to slow. Remember the word count will be important. The current tempo on the song now is 140pbm with one verse. If we run 3 verses and 2 chorus it will be in the 3:25 to 3:50 minute range if shorten the intro. Remember the post where you talked about words per gallon. Will need to look at that as we write this lyric. I say we finish up the lyrics and tweak them, then revist the music. I think will make better progress that way.

I don't think there's much more to say as far as the lyric goes, it's fairly simple. Can you give me an idea where we will need to be for sylable counts and line amounts to fit the music, so we can start trimming it up some?

Sounds good Rob, let me know what you need me to do. My wife has been gone for 6 days, and she just got home, so I better go spend some time with her.

Latest lyrics

I was at the local tavern
for a burger and a brew
when a girl at the jukebox said
do ya want to hear some tunes

play me some of them southern sounds
with that country atti i tu u ude
yeah turn it up and crank it loud
n just fall into the groove
Ain't nothing like them ol' southern sounds
to drive away your blue ooh ooh's
so play me some o' them southern sounds
with a country attitude

Give me some o' that southern rock
mixed with some rythym and blues
hey girl now don't forget
some country attitude
anything from gimme three steps
to them Haggard song's of truth
nothing like them old sweet songs
to get you in the mood

Play me a song bout Curtis Lowe
with a green grass high tides view
don't forget bout the CDB
that stuff kicks just like a mule
from Molly Hatchett to the Van Zandts
and don't forget that Allman crew
we'll be dancing to some ol' Blackfoot
yeah, you know you love em too

So play me some of them southern sounds
with that country atti i tu u ude
yeah turn it up and crank it loud
n just fall into the groove
Ain't nothing like them ol' sweet sounds
to drive away your blue ooh ooh's
so play me some o' them southern sounds
with a country attitude
