Gwyn and I have done a few more collabs over the summer - I have been unwell so not able to post. This one is a title of mine along with Gwyn's music/lyrics.

Lyrics: 

WHENEVER I'M TROUBLED (Cooper/Jones/Trad)
(c) 2019 All Rights Reserved

Whenever I`m troubled
Whenever I`m down
Whenever I feel sad
And wearing a frown
Whenever I`m troubled
Whenever I`m blue
I reach for my guitar
And know what to do

I`ll sing out the pain
With every line
I`ll sing out the anguish
From this heart of mine
I`ll use the music
To soothe my soul
Turn empty feelings
Into something whole

Whenever I`m troubled
Whenever I`m lost
Whenever I`m lonely
And counting the cost
Whenever I`m troubled
Whenever I`m blue
I reach for my guitar
To help pull me through

I`ll play out the misery
With every note
I`ll play out the sorrow
In each word I wrote
I`ll use the music
To express myself
And it works wonders
Like nothing else

Whenever I`m troubled
Whenever I`m down
Whenever I feel sad
And wearing a frown
Whenever I`m troubled
Whenever I`m blue
I reach for my guitar
And know what to do

Sorry you've bee I'll! This is such a great Celtic song! And how wonderfully universal that music heals!

Djg is like a chameleon he's now Irish. This could slip onto any fureys album. Great stuff and my guitar and other instruments always make me feel good.
