Liner Notes: 

Noticed the prompt at 2:34 CDT. Had song complete by 2:51 CDT.

Guitar, capo 4, shortcut capo 6 (ADG strings).

One take let it rock skirmish style!

Lyrics: 

Wake up in the morning
A new day begins
Wash your face and head
Forget yesterday's sins

A brand new start again
Another day to be
Another chance to explore
In life, the long journey

Life is the long journey
So many things to explore
Some that you'll want to remember
Some that you'll need to ignore
Life is the long journey
Take it one day at a time
Be thankful for every moment you get
And the trip will be sublime
Yeah, the long journey is life

Go out on a side road
And see what you find
Search both high and low
Expand what's in your mind

A new experience
Another thing to see
Another chance to explore
In life, the long journey

Life is the long journey
So many things to explore
Some that you'll want to remember
Some that you'll need to ignore
Life is the long journey
Take it one day at a time
Be thankful for every moment you get
And the trip will be sublime
Yeah, the long journey is life

When you get to the end
Will you look back and see
The joy in it all?

Guitar does move this nice lyric on nicely, excellently done in such a short time. Same sorta message as mine!

Those chords are gorgeous and rich!! And I love the way the verse turns up in pitch at the end of the line, it's awesome. Enjoyable and listen-able stuff my friend! ☺☺

Nice sound, nice lesson. I love the attitude. Especially the lines "some that you'll want to remember, some that you'll want to ignore."

The adventurous journey. I love the "some that you'll need to ignore" line. Ain't that the truth.

You have come so far Alex, since I can remember first listening to your songs on FAWM (can't remember how long ago !). This is a truly beautiful song.

Uplifting and wise! Guitar has a lovely chime, and your voice is jubilant and hopeful. I love it!
