Liner Notes: 

Ready for your editing, arranging, music, recording, marketing. List Larry W Jones as lyrics writer.

Chip: It's been a few years since I've had the pleasure and honor of doing one of Larry's songs. Feels like coming home - because I can get in touch with my country roots, and because I do indeed live in the Sunshine State (except now there's a hurricane bearing down on us - I'm used to it by now).

Lyrics: 

Land Where The Sunshine Grows

I know a rollin’ stone will travel any road
Cause I know I’ve been one and never shared my load
But now I want to take it slow and change my clothes
Help me make it to the land where the sunshine grows

I want to settle where my rovin’ days are past
Not where a captain sails more years before the mast
Tell me now in case any good man rightly knows
Help me make it to the land where the sunshine grows

(Instrumental)

It’s there I want to stay and spend my ending days
For I intend to settle down and change my ways
I’m through with trav’lin and livin’ with highs and lows
Help me make it to the land where the sunshine grows

Once I thought to marry and raise a family
But then I tarried and too late I let it be
Days have darkened and now I need to plant a rose
Help me make it to the land where the sunshine grows

Days have darkened and now I need to plant a rose
Help me make it to the land where the sunshine grows



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I really like the image of 'the land where the sunshine grows'. Some wistfulness to this lyric as well.

Thanks. Most of us have been to lands where the sunshine seemed to have died (North England in December).

This is amazing! I clicked on the title because I live in the Sunshine State. (It's sunny this morning, but we'll likely get our usual afternoon storms, too.)
I'd love to put this one to music if it's ok with you. If so, don't add me as a collaborator just yet because I might not get to it til after Labor Day.
