This is a country lyric. I'm looking for a cowriter to do the second verse and create a melody for the song. Suggestions are welcome & thanks for stopping by.

An Angel To Be
ęDavid Arthur & ?

V1

A waitress down at the diner
Where I eat lunch every day
She's never made a lot in tips
And doesn't get much pay
Eyes pass her by on Sundays
When it comes to offering time
She can't give as much as them
She needs every dime

Ch

But there is so much more to her
Than the blind at heart can see
Those who think too highly of themselves
Feel above an angel to be

V2

Br

No grave is going to hold her
And a tombstone's just a rock
I know it marks ones place in life
But I heard some parishioners talk
Said she won't live life their way
But why would she walk their walk
Cause no grave is going to hold her
And a tombstone's just a rock

Ch

Yes there is so much more to her
Than the blind at heart can see
Those who think too highly of themselves
Feel above an angel to be

I've thought of a couple different ways I could go with the second verse but they just don't feel right yet. Any suggs are welcome.

Okay, I came up with a melody and only need help with the second verse if anyone is interested.

Hi, didn't hear the tune. but here is a quick idea

A single mom with two kids
Always up before the dawn
She kept them well fed
Taught them right from wrong,
Wearing secondhand clothes
And old worn out shoes
Her pride never faltered
Her smile stayed true

just a rough idea may need smoothed out,
all the best.john

Just Plain Quotes
"Our enemies may not be who we think they are. They are not Major Label monopolies. The world will always have 'majors.' They are not big corporations who own everything. The world will always have 'big' ones. Our enemies are not the loud mouthed critics telling us we will fail. The world will always have those too. Our most dangerous enemy is our own quiet acceptance of the fate we perceive these entities have mapped out for us. The only danger is our own complacency, or inactivity, and our willingness to believe so called experts who tell us we 'can't' and that our grim fate is inevitable." -Brian Austin Whitney
