Last Day of Summer (Mix)
The other day I noodled a tune and posted it as instrumental. Then I thought I should be able to add a vocal track, so I made some lyrics to suit. That was difficult to do, to make words fit something that was not planned evenly with correct meter and chords. But I arrived at a lyric and added it to my noodle tune. Took awhile as it was a new thing for me. After listening, I added another track with mandolin chords to fill in some gaps.
I have learned many things during this process. It is not easy to start with the noodle. It would have been better to do dome planning, instead of just keep adding stuff to make it sound OK.
But next time I will have some better ideas.
Summertime was a song
with a melody that floated on the breeze
and like the wind
the songs floated in
to charm and lure and tease
Summertime. It was a season.
With goals that beckoned to be met
and like a game
the scores were kept
accomplishments no one will forget
The morning dawned clear and cold,
with a crispness in the air
that hinted end of summertime
and the end of our love affair
Summertime. It was a song.
It was a season well written
And like a dream, it glides away
as the autumn winds they do quicken
as the autumn winds do quicken
The end-of-summer winds
Whispering from afar
makes us want some comfort place
its time to rest for awhile
A fallen leaf is nothing more
than a summer’s wave goodbye.
Summertime. It was a song
And like a dream, it glides away.
