I ain’t the kind to sit on the front pew
And you won’t hear me say “Amen”
Somehow I always feel closer
When I’m out on Walden’s Ridge

Although I was slow to ‘get it’
He gets me ; I’ve no regrets
When His Spirit leads I let it
Tunes my heart strings to His frets

Like Him I reach out to others
If You know they’re hurting just be kind
He could calm the storm and heal the blind
Imagine what He’s done with a heart like mine

Daddy cried when I came to Jesus
Said he’d prayed most ev’ry day
Said my heart just needed tuning
I just grinned. What could I say?

Like Him I reach out to others
If You know they’re hurting just be kind
He could calm the storm and heal the blind
Imagine what He’s done with a heart like mine

Please understand, when I do these "phone roughs" it's the first time I've actually played the song lol... So, I'm really just fishing :)

Are you kidding me? That’s great. Little tear almost started but I wanted to hear so I did the southern men don’t cry and made it thru

Can I share that with the cousin who gave me Heart Like Mine to work on. He’ll be thrilled too

You are good. We may have to tweak heart like mine line to fit better you seem to have done that on the fly

Thanks so much

Played it for my wife. She gave me the response I love most to hear. “Did you write those words?

Again great job. We both think you remind us of JCash. Especially at “What could I say”. I don’t know which song of his that has a similar line. I think it’s “What do I care”

Okay I’ll stop posting and see what others have to say

Well, if no one else is going to pick this apart I guess I'll start... ;)

"Walden's Ridge..." Could be a family property? Could be a couple crosses there where Great Grandpa's buried? Could overlook the community church house the Waldens built? Perhaps the "singer character has had trouble with the law?

There's plenty of room here... :)

I’ll help. Waldens Ridge is a two-topped mountain between rhea and Bledsoe counties. Easy hike from my growing up home. From the first top you can see into Bradley and neiva counties. Nothing there but stripped cars and a blacktop road even today
