3/50-Savoy Row (Rob Lincoln) Song #682

Liner Notes: 

Very loosely inspired by Clifton In The Rain, but sounds nothing like it.


#682-Savoy Row ©2021 by Rob Lincoln Capo 7

Intro- G to Em C (lift 1st finger) D C (w/lift) D G D 2x second time end on G

Verse same chords as intro

We walked along in the misty rain
Turned down the soggy lane
Laughed as we got soaked in London town
Now everywhere I go
I still dream of Savoy Row
And the times we had before it all went down

Seems like yesterday we’re happy
Seems like yesterday has past

Through the cool Westminster nights
I can see the evening lights

I can see your brown hair blowing in the air

But it all starts to fade and I’m thinking of today
I just can’t dream to try and make it right

Seems like you were in the springtime
But now winter’s come again


Seems like today I still am lonely
Seems like tomorrow is the same


come home and turn the key
Sit down and drink some tea
Then wonder why it was never meant to be

I still dream of Savoy Row
And that’s the place I go

When I feel I I just can’t live with me

I still dream of Savoy Row
And that’s the place I go
When I feel I just can’t live with me (slow it down)

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

Lovely guitar line to support the pleasantly visual lyrics and charming melody. A keeper, I'd say!

Beautiful picking and melody and a lovely, bittersweet lyric.

Really nice song... tells a story effectively and effortlessly, like so many of your songs!

tho I have to mention, as a big Beatles fan from way back, aren't you thinking of Savile Row? I don't know a Savoy Row in London, tho there could well be one Smile

Funny you should ask about Saville Row, home of the Apple Record Label. I had the title Savoy Row in my head but when I went on Google all I got was Saville Row, a well known neighborhood in London. Some further digging led to a small street in Westminster named Savoy Row.

Very pretty guitar and an interesting lyric and a lovely delivery - what more can you ask!
