Simple draft recording here: http://www.jamwave.com/RobYoung

You'll only hear country on my radio, driving my load on down the road
it's more than just a state of mind, while I drive between the lines
driving fast or crusing slow it's only country on this radio


Hip Hop and Pop and Rock and Roll, I just don't feel it in my soul,
and if you catch me on the road, thru rain and sleet and freezing cold
the smile on my face will let you know, cuz it's only country on my radio

Sometimes it's simple sometimes it's not, and often times a lessons taught
It can make you laugh and make you cry, point out things that are a lie
can you tell, its not hard to show, It's only country on my radio

Make me feel lonely and sometimes blue,  or how I'm missing my woman too
picks me up when I am feeling down and gets me thru to my next town
helps me with my highs and my lows, it's country everywhere I go

Don't you ever touch that dial, see I'll be listening for awhile
Till the day that I am finally gone, Ill be listening to country songs
cuz I only play country on my radio

well I only read it twice, but I liked what I saw the way it is. Oh and btw, I just got a call from the boss. I'm going back to work because of all the rain up in your area, our Orlando office needs me, so I've been called back to work. woohoooo I don't even know where I'm going to, they just told me to pack for a month and head towords Orlando, and they will call me and tell me where to go.

Well by Golly! Songwriter,

I started to read and wondered about a Chorus and then thought ......"not every song has a chorus"....and I think of "Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain"... so chorus be damned and I sure would like to hear this put to music......with not all verses the same tune.

I sure miss country................the old way ..............Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash, Waylon, --OMG...................I am OLD!!

mai

Thanks Mai... Your right not all songs have a chorus and I usually do have them in my songs. . I haven't finished this one yet so it may come. "Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash, Waylon" (All great artists) They were all on the radio when I was a kid. I think as a songwriter you can't help but be influenced by them. Heck I don't know what old is anymore. I think if you stay active and interact with people you don't really get old.

This is great. I can hear it in my head as I'm reading it. Sounds a lot like John Anderson!

I like it Rob, the straight forward delivery suits the message. One small suggestion might be to swap:

It's only country on my radio  -> There's only country on my radio

I agree with everybody else Rob.  It's a good write.  If you don't come up with a chorus, I think you could very easily turn what you have the last verse into a chorus.

Owen I like that suggestion. It flows better. I'll play around with that line once I put it to music.  Thanks.

Roy good suggestion. Now that I read that line again I think it would work. Thanks.

Rob, I wish I could write a song like this in 15 minutes. 

Isn't it funny how sometimes you can slave over a song and end up with it sounding not so good and at then other times, like this...it just clicks!  Rob, I like Owens suggestion, There's  instead of It does sound better. 

And in the second verse.... the smile on my face can let you know, You'll hear country on my radio...instead of can how "bout  will  or even will always...if melody allows.  I don't critique well Rob, so grain of salt time, ok?

Sam

Thanks Sam. I think "will" is a better choice. I used "always" but I inserted it between "You'll" and "Hear". I'll play with the melody some more and see how it turns out.

I'm not sure why it works that way sometimes. I found that it is easier for me if I come up with a phrase or a line I like and put it in notepad and start writing without any consideration for rhymes and then organize it after I'm done. I believe I picked that up from TSF Mike. He had a thread explaining he liked to write a short story about a few paragraphs long and then work on a rhyme scheme. If I read it and it sounds natural like its in a conversation I usually go with it. For every one song I write I usually have 2 that I can't finish right away and I'll just file it and come back to it at a later point.  Pressure seems to have an amazing impact on my writing. It seems the less time I have the more creative I am when I do have free time. A strong melody in my head helps alot too.
