Tumbleweed Christmas rewrite 3
V
Everyone rushed to beat the snow fall
While I just sat in a bar watching them all.
now ive nobody to buy a Christmas present for anyway
for a Tumbleweed, Christmas is just another day.
V
Juke box played yet another Christmas tune
Well Bing, looks like your dream will come true
Some of those songs start churning up old memories
before I lost her and got carried off with the breeze
C
Tumbleweed Christmas drifting onto another place
One more Sally Army band, kids with an expectant ( or excited)look on their face
Tumbleweed Christmas, find a room for the night
Be a fool if I didn't confess-
Wish I had someone special to hold so tight ( or tonight)
B1
Least I'm not one of those guys who sits staring into his beer
I know a thousand people- pity they ain't all here.
We could all share this Christmas Eve
End it with that familiar line-
Been good talking to you buddy. it's late. Good night, then they leave before closing time
V
Odd when the festive season comes around
feeling sentimental walking round a strange town
Christmas lights flashing in every shop window
People dashing but all of them with places to go
B2
I swear she's still here, get a grip boy or you'll cry
Caught here for a second in the corner of my eye
Or watching from my shadow walking behind.
Two Tumbleweeds , maybe one day united for all time
Chorus





----------------------------
Tumbleweed Christmas
V
Everyone rushed around to beat the snow fall
While I just sat in a bar watching them all
no one to buy a Christmas present anyway
for a Tumbleweed, Christmas is just another day.
V
Someone selected another Christmas tune
Well Bing, looks like your dream will come true soon
For guys like me Christmas will happen while i leave
Cotton wool or cotton candy? Not for Tumbleweed
C
Tumbleweed Christmas rolling into another place
Another Salvation Army band,
More children with a happy face
Tumbleweed Christmas find a room for the night
Be a fool if I didn't confess
Wish I had someone special now to hold so tight
B1
Least I'm not one of those guys who sits staring into his beer
I know a thousand people- pity they ain't all here.
We could all share this Christmas Eve
End it with that familiar line-
Been good talking to you buddy. it's late. Good night, then they leave
V
Odd when the festive season comes around
feel sentimental walking round a strange town
Christmas lights flashing in every shop window
People dashing but all of them with places to go
B2
Sometimes I think she's with me
I swear she was there, caught for a second in the corner of my eye
Or there in a shadows walking behind
Tumbleweeds but one day we'll be united for all time
Chorus

---------------------------------------------'
TUMBLEWEED CHRISTMAS
V
My pony somehow knows
When clouds fill with snow
As the east wind knaws my fingers to the bone
but thankfully we're nearing home

V
Been a long journey back
to that small mountain shack
Boy listen to that lonesome coyote call
sounds like he's dreading that snow fall

Pre c
But not me on this Christmas Eve
blanket of white just like those Christmas cards
I'm looking forward to see


C
No Tumbleweed Christmas
soon see the lights of home
A place missed so much
On all the roads travelled on
I've a drifter, no more
Rolling stone has come home for sure
No Tumbleweed Christmas, won't drift past my
door
B
Daddy would have chopped down a tall Christmas tree
waiting for my return
to decorate with all my family
V
Loving arms to welcome
happy tears from mom
It's such a long time since I tried to move on
couldn't forget where I came from

Chorus

Travis,

This has a Robert Frost feel to it—you set the mood early and well. A tune with a lot of potential. Love the "Tumbleweed Christmas" theme and concept--really serves as the backbone of the tune. There are some opportunities--as we all have when we put pen to paper--for refinement in word choice and rhythm. But you’ll work that out as you always seem to do. I'll be looking forward to the end result.

Best regards,

Deej
