    Sorry I got to get this out...

    Late nights I hear her calling

    the house quiet , her voice is clear

    the memories uninvited

    linger, sweet and dear

    Deep in the Cottonwoods

    late shadows creeping down

    the porch was wide and inviting

    I still see her now

    Our days were filled together

    and the nights were all to short

    We longed to melt together

    and hold each other near

    I hear her calling

    her voice is soft and clear

    the time we had together

    way to short and all too dear

    ((Dear Mr. hillbilly))

    I'm truly saddened that life and circumstance have taken this disappointing turn.

    From an old friend,

    Craig-- (i sense your worried)... just a little country song writing exercise... Life, my best pal, is good... if we let it be that way!

    I guess I'm like them locusts... stuff comes out in cycles for me.

    "Country music" is sort of an indefinite description.... so todays "country" is Albania!

    The dammned thing needs a "hook" for a chorus! Thats always the hard part for me.. a good, Non-stupid, sounding hook.

    I hear strings in this arrangement too....and a little steel riff somplace...chords! i need chords!

    the great songwriter David Allen Coe points out that any good country song needs : trains, rain, prison and momma.- at a minimum Oh yea, and trucks....from memory something like this-

    " i got the drunk

    the day my momma

    got out of prison

    and i went to pick her up in the rain

    before I made to the station in the

    pickup truck

    She got runned over by a damned ole train"

    So I'll hang around as long as you will let me

    cause I never minded standin

    in the rain

    you dont have to call me darlin


    and i never minded standin

    in the rain...

    This thing would work with that Garth Brooks tune "thunder rolls"... maybe I need to tweak the meter some?
