These Songs (Neil Cotton)

As a guitar picker Iím pretty much a hack.
I feel like a legend on my porch out back
Singing to birds in trees, is all that I need
But if you drop by thatís a concert to me

I love to tell stories most sung in 4 chords
From my adventures hey some could be yours

A little bit of everyone
Is found in these songs.
Our lives are pictures
Painted by these songs.
More than words and chords
Thereís truth is in these songs.

In social meet & greets some topics are too hot
Religion & politics can really boil the pot
But in a song we can get away with these
Cause art is fair game and open to critique

Those topics stir emotions when talking face to face
Leave it to the singers to rattle that cage

A little bit of everyone
Is found in these songs.
Our lives are pictures
Painted by these songs.
More than words and chords
Thereís truth is in these songs.

Neil,

I like what you have going on with this one. Really good idea for a song, and I think the chorus works really well. Depending on your melody, you may trim a word or two on certain lines in the verses, but hard to tell just reading it. Will look forward to hearing this one.

All the best,

Deej

I like the image of telling life stories through song. I especially like the line of some of these adventures could yours.

Really like the 1V and the pre, Good stuff!
Had a thought for the chorus, (what was it you used to say? Keep or sweep?) smile

A little bit of everything's
Found in these songs.
A life in pictures
Painted by these songs.
More than words could ever mean
Seems to me
Within these songs
Within these songs

Didn't like that "pot" line-I don't think it's allowed till July so....

In social meet & greets some topics are taboo
Gotta keep what you believe inside of you
But in a song we can get away with these
Cause art is fair game and open to critique

Probably a million miles from where you're headed but I could hear this as a Texas blues-yeah that's right! crazy
Good job here Mr. Neil, hope the music works out for you!
-Mike
