Acoustic Open Mic sound of Tammy Jann here. This is what I play out, I actually memorized this song, one of the very few. It has always gotten a nice reaction from the audience, I enjoy singing it, you know, melancholy, sad, my typical style I guess.

WASH AWAY on SoundCloud


Wash Away
by Tammy Jann
© 2017

You were running away from this troubled land
each foot sank deep into the sand
until you finally made it to the shore

you stepped into the cold, salty foam
wading in deep to forget you're alone
hoping a broken heart can be cured

chorus
The ocean holds the answers
out where the waves break
They will rush in to hold you
and leave nothing in their wake
you're coming home again
leave your troubles behind
and wash away the crazy world
wash away the troubles in your mind

open your eyes and see the darkened sky
the clouds are gone and time is floating by
and you fight your way back to the sand

step out into the world and join the fray
but the world hurts your heart in another way
and only the ocean will understand

chorus
The ocean holds the answers
out where the waves break
They will rush in to hold you
and leave nothing in their wake
you're coming home again
leave your troubles behind
and wash away the crazy world
wash away the troubles in your mind

Tams,

Beautiful vocal—you have just a wonderful, magnetic voice; keeps me listening just to see where it will go next. Like the melodic shift in the last line of the verses—compelling. Pretty and sad folk tune. Well done!

Best regards,

Deej

Really enjoyed my listen, Tammy:

You have a vocal delivery that has a hint of a Joan Baez vibe... and that is a great thing (even though we had polarity when it came to politics... LOL) so I hope you'll continue to develop a "style" of singing that fits your singing comfort zone. This may be the one. Captivating song... personal, moving and sad.

I know, Marc keeps telling us "Sad won't play in Nashville"... but I'm not in Nashville. I'm in the middle of nowhere and you have thrown me a life-line with your song and it's message. Great work. ----Dave

Awww, Tammy. Beautifully sad. Good vocal. Good title.
I would have liked to hear more made of "wash away" in the chorus but I can't have everything can I?

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Beautiful Tammy. Such a pure vocal. Fine accompaniment on the acoustic. Authentic and powerful performance with your usually exquisite vocal.

As we mentioned at SC...a strong and confident vocal. And that is a great way to deliver such a well written tune.

The chorus really sticks with you.

Nice Tammy.

We much enjoyed it.

Hey Tams,

Hauntingly beautiful mate. Can't fault the vocal, and the lyrics have a well defined double meaning.

Love it, and I bet it's a crowd stopper played live.

cheers, niteshift

Hi Tams...…..wow.....you wrote this?? Your performance is stellar. You have become quit the singer / songwriter.

What a beautiful sound you have here....again, great songwriting crafting. I can hear a violin in there....haunting.
