A little country song that Gwyn and I wrote in the space of an hour today! Didn't mean to self skirmish but had to squash it in between teaching hours...as you do! Biggrin Lyrics by Gwyn, music and performance by me. Thanks for listening!

Lyrics: 

ONE DAY THAT SHIP IS COMING IN
(c) 2019 Cooper/Jones
All Rights Reserved

V1:
I look out at the horizon
Where the ocean meets the sky
I can feel new hope a-rising
For you my love and I

V2:
There’s a speck out in the distance
Getting larger by the day
With goodwill and persistence
It is headed straight our way

PC:
And such bounteous gifts we will receive
And all we have to do is believe…

CH:
One day that ship is coming in
On calm water with a fair wind
And we can live our dreams again
The day that ship…my love…comes in

V3:
Bringing help and understanding
Joy and kindness and much more
And times won’t be demanding
When that good ship reaches shore

V2:
There’s a speck out in the distance
Getting larger by the day
With goodwill and persistence
It is headed straight our way

PC:
All that’s been lost we can retrieve
And all we have to do is believe…

CH:
One day that ship is coming in
On calm water with a fair wind
And we can live our dreams again
The day that ship…my love…comes in

You did this in that amount of time? What a great country song! Such super lyrics and that music and vocals!

When you have the goods, a self-skirmish WORKS. This is a classic country sound for sure. The percussive guitar playing works well here.

Wonderfully upbeat; the happy music and optimistic lyrics are invigorating, and the vocals really sell it. Great job both of you just getting in there and getting it done (and done so well)!

This is really lovely. Great feel and melody. There’s a sweetness and optimism that gives me the warm and fuzzies. Wonderful song along feel to the chorus.

I like the lyric and your melody suits it so well... the happy optimism over the driving guitar rhythm. It's hard to find truly happy songs these days.
