Liner Notes: 

This time of year I yearn for my beloved Chesapeake Bay. This needs music and singing.

Lyrics: 

Chesapeake Bay in the Fall

V1
I step on deck and watch the dawn
Not a ripple shows on the bay
When the morning mist has gone
It’ll be another fine day

V2
The forest has put on its mantel
Of gold and yellow and red
Summer’s about to unmantle
And give us autumn instead

Chorus:
There are few finer places to sail
From Norfolk right up to Rock Hall
Than on Chesapeake Bay in the fall

V3
Delta-flights of Canada geese
Come back to their winter home
On the Bay, a steady breeze
And sailboats are starting to roam

V4
Soon I’ll up anchor and wander
Down to the islands and keys
But next year again I’ll be moored
In this bay with its golden trees

Chorus:
There are few finer places to sail
From Norfolk right up to Rock Hall
Than on Chesapeake Bay in the fall



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

I can just picture this in my head. Brilliant and great flow!

Excellent establishing lines in the first verse, wonderful descriptions and rhymes. Kind of reminds me of a Gordon Lightfoot type song (he's got some nice sailing songs).

Hey, would you mind if I quickly added music to this one before 50/90 ends? I really like it a lot!
