OK - see the first two songs posted here for "granular" liner notes, -- not gonna keep re-pasting it, (if interested).
Again, this/these is/are all going to be a one-take krappey cell phone recordings. Some may come from an Audacity upload, --pending how my Linux Mint 18.1 migration is going. Frankly, the phones as good or better +- :). Linux and Audacity seem to be getting along... so we'll see.
-- This was a one-take, however, of course as you can hear..., I was acclimating to audacity on Linux as previously commented, --so ad hoc overdubbed a guitar sitting near by on-hand and a cajon I have a mixing board sitting upon (threw an MXL990 inside it). I haven't played a hand-drum in a long time... had to work out that coordination since not the same as a kit (less is more for sure on that thing), --took it out, put it back, etc. ... kinda worked with a thump hearbeat... maybe need to tighten the screws on the soundboard... no sure about the "slap/clap" down beat from it... jembe didn't seem appropriate and a drumkit... to much for now!!! :).
[ Oh, and the *birds supplied by God, outside my window this morning... , they get paid from the garden and fruit trees. So much for unidirectional mics... ]
Remember, --I don't clean up my lyrics, it's notes and all, so, figure it out!
[Start e, or a, a may be higher pitch… either way w/”energy”]
/Am s-e [a] / /
If you walk with Jesus
He'll save your soul
But He won't save your body
/Em s-e /^^^ Em sus / / [“cold”... s-e g e ?]
The world takes you cold
(Our) 2nd time? [… Woooww… ]
If you talk with Jesus
He'll take you with Him
He won't take your work
Em s-d s-g Em sus
The world breaks that mold
/F s-f / / ^v^v^
There is no cold hard truth to living life
You fight bold till tired avoiding strife
Driving hard not scratching the paint
/C s-g /G s-g /D D sus / / / /
Then pile up hard.. to end… the fight… … [f# e d]
[Repeat all again, or --- V1, V2, Instrumental, Chorus again, fade out]
[2ndx thru, consider octave up, Am s-a Em s-e, low g to e on “world”]
