Its been a while away for me, but here I am! This is a song I wrote for my wife. Any comments are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

http://sclk.co/r/s89wwz

V1
Oh darlin, I will always be true,
Cause I love you, my whole heart through
My life would have no meaning, without you
Oh darlin I will always be true.

Chorus
I used to pray in my room each night
So the Lord would know my plight.
Then came the day, He answered my prayers
And you walked into my life.

V2
So darlin, if you are ever blue,
I'll try to be, the sunshine for you,
For when I see you sad, my heart breaks in 2
I'll try to be the sunshine for you.

Chorus

So darlin, I hope you'll always be,
By my side growing old with me,
Without your hand in mine, I'm lost you see
Oh darlin won't you grow old with me!


Everything we have has come from you, and we
give you only what you have already given us!

1 Chronicles 29:14

Organ on this as glue would be really good. Sax too. Only “pet peeve” is you call this “Oh Darling”....you switch up to so and then to Oh many times which is fine. I just wouldn’t (if it were mine) name it one or the other. I would just name it Darlin’....

Nice feel

Nice sentiments Todd and the song works well for me.

My only thoughts would be and this is only my opinion which could be worthless...

Lyrically I thought the Chorus made a better verse1 and verse 1 a better Chorus... The order of events make more sense to me then...

Sorry If my thoughts are not for you...

God Bless Roy

Hi Todd
Great to see you posting again!
Lovely sentiments, i could well imagine this as a Doo wop song. Definately not a Doh! Wop.
It fits into that retro 50s early 60s style well.
All the Best
John
