Wrote A New Song Last Night

Wrote a new tune last night, very old timey - like an old folk tune...Gillian Welch's "EVERYTHING IS FREE NOW" is a better song (and model for the sentiment), but this is my honest stab at it...music / demo to come...

LOVE WON’T LET ME DOWN

THERE’S TROUBLE ON DOWN THE WIRE
THEY’RE THROWING MORE RECORDS ON THE FIRE
BUT THIS GUITAR STAYS TIGHTLY WOUND
MY LOVE WON’T LET ME DOWN

IT’S BEEN A LONG HARD ROAD
I’VE HAD TO LET A FEW DREAMS GO
CARRY THE WEIGHT FROM TOWN TO TOWN
STILL, MY LOVE WON’T LET ME DOWN

IN THE CRADLE OF A SONG
THERE'S A GENTLE MOVING ON

I KNOW OUTSIDE IT’S DARK
BUT I’LL PLAY TILL MORNING WITH ALL MY HEART
LONG AS THESE STRINGS GET PULLED AROUND
LONG AS THERE’S RHYTHM IN THE SOUND
MY LOVE WON’T LET ME DOWN
MY LOVE WON'T LET ME DOWN
