For the last skirmish had to write to the prompt “Beach”. I wrote about Lake Superior which reminded me of this bar and grill in Northern Wisconsin on the road home so had to write something about that too.

Lyrics: 

V1
at the Moondance Bar and Grill
in Sugar Camp, Wisconsin
in the Northwoods by Lake Mill
near the White Stag Inn

by car, truck,and snowmobile
locals and tourists come and go
to have a burger and a beer
where big fish stories are told

C
there’s great food
there’s strong drinks
there’s good causal conversation
with views of deer
and gold sunsets
at this Northwoods destination

V2
at the Moondance Bar and Grill
at a barstool or at a table
they treat you like old friends
invite you back when you are able

there are no airs or pretenses
no French or high cuisine
just the best Friday fish fries
the Northwoods have ever seen

C
there’s great food
there’s strong drinks
there’s good causal conversation
with views of deer
and gold sunsets
at this Northwoods destination



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

Ah, sounds like a delightful place.

You describe it so well. I'm from the north, so snowmobiles and deer and the such hit home.

You make it sound like a delight! Smile

Oooh! I really like these lyrics. I don't usually do collars, but if I have an idea by tomorrow morning, would you let me have a go at them? If someone else wants to before then, let them. I can never be sure I'll get it.

Did you write this with a waltz feel or duple sort of feel to it? I can read it as both, but if I try to write music for it, I'd at least like to use your meter.
