She Won't Sing For Me Anymore
Another song recorded outdoors last night for guitar and vocal. This morning added piano (my original instrument - started lessons at age eight).
Years ago I wrote a song called "La Dee Da" about a guy who misses hearing his ex sing. Yesterday, I posted a new, happy song with a similar title. Then, I went to that well for another new one - a real country weeper.
She could sing the praise of God, or the praise of wine
she could sing old country songs or to Mary so divine
she'd sing in the morning as she walked out the door
but she won't sing for me any more
I loved to hear her sing so sweetly
I loved to hear her whistle, too - just a bit off-key
she'd sing as she filled her cart at the grocery store
but she won't sing for me anymore
No formal training, but to me she sure sounded fine
She knew some opera, and many a tune by Patsy Cline
When she sang gospel, made me believe in the Lord
But she won’t sing for me any more
loved to hear her sing so happily
sometimes she’d dance, not quite as gracefully
She'd be singing as she cleaned our little house from room to room
wonder if she's singing now, and if she is for whom
she sings in my dreams and in memories I can’t ignore
but she won’t sing for me any more
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
