Challenge 14

The goal of our "Song Challenges" is to write songs/lyrics on demand within set parameters. We don't critique each other's songs in this thread (but you can say you like someone's song if you want to.) Please post your original works. If you have already written a song/lyric that fits within the parameters, please feel free to post it.

Well… Thanksgiving is coming up. How about a song involving gratitude? Please include a chorus for this one. Good Luck.

Hi Jean,

Thanks for another challenge. What an appropriate time for this hook. I don't believe there are alot of "Thanksgiving" songs out there so perhaps we'll start something here. Happy Thanksgiving to everybody!!!! I can picture a warm video with this (needs a pretty melody)


“This Thanksgiving”
©2007 Lynn Orloff

Autumn's chill reminds us all Thanksgiving’s coming
The leaves are scattered everywhere, their colors bright
How we anticipate the day
When we will bow our hearts to pray
But darling without words there’s something I will say

Chorus
This Thanksgiving as we gather round the table
All holding hands while giving thanks to God above
I hope you know that when I squeeze your hand so tightly
That is my way of saying thank you for your love


Friends and relatives have traveled many miles
The smell of pumpkin pie and turkey fills the air
We come to celebrate the day
Our spirits high though skies are gray
But darling without words there’s something I must say

This Thanksgiving as we gather round the table
All holding hands while giving thanks to God above
I hope you know that when I squeeze your hand so tightly
That is my way of saying thank you for your love


Bridge:
Though my heart is truly thankful for the life I live
My greatest blessing is receiving all the love you give...so

Final Chorus
This Thanksgiving as we gather round the table
I'll hold your hand as we give thanks to God above
I hope you know that when I squeeze your hand so tightly
That's just my way of saying thank you for your love
My special way of saying thank you for your love

Chasin’ Sunsets

An open sky, and a full tank of gas
the sun is setting on this overpass.
It makes me thankfull
for all I really have
The nights are cold, and the waiting is cruel.
The only thing that seems to get me through
is that one time zone to the next
brings me closer to you.

(Chorus)
I'm chasin' sunsets (x3)
With the thought that you'll be there with me.

I've seen the bright lights, of fame and fortune
The crowds make me thankful for how blessed that I am
like any success its here and then it's gone.

From every hotel I sleep in
To every lonely morning thinking
Just waiting for the dawn
I call you on the telephone
I hear your voice I'm not alone
And I know that it won't be long

(Chorus)

But you believed when times were tough
You're my diamond in the rough
The only constant in my life
has been your love.

From every hotel I sleep in
To every lonely morning thinking
Just waiting for the dawn

I didn't worry too much about strict rhyming. I'll try and do some music soon. I'm sure lines will change as I try to make it fit within a muciscal backdrop.

************************

I Just Want To Thank You
(c) Kevin Emmrich 2007

(Verse 1)
When I think of you
Two words come to mind
When I talk to you
I find that I'm at peace
When I hold you
Nothing can compare

(Chorus)
I just want to say Thank You
For all you have done
I just want to Thank You
You pulled me up

I just want to say Thank You
I know it's not enough
I just want to Thank You
For all The things you've said,
All the things you fixed
With no thought for yourself
I just want to thank you

(Hot Instrumental Break)

(Verse 2)
This is the time of year
When we seek what is true
The is the time of year
when we hold loved ones close
This is the time of year
When I find myself thanking you

(Chorus)
I just want to say Thank You
For all you have done
I just want to Thank You
You make living fun

I just want to say Thank You
I know it's not enough
I just want to Thank You
For all The things you've said,
All the things you fixed
With no thought for yourself
I just want to thank you

Here is a song I wrote through the eyes of a survivor of a disaster,like 911 or flood.
Thank you for your love,
Your hand upon my shoulder.
Though we barely knew each other,
Your love made us bolder.

Chorus:
Alone, we are a bruised reed,
A candle dimly lit.
But together, we'll be stronger.
We'll get through this bit by bit.

Thank you for your patience,
The look that says "I know".
Though the time to mend seems long,
Your patience helps me grow.

Thanks for sticking with me,
For sticking through the thick and thin.
Though the struggle seems so long,
In the end, the right will win.

This is on a cd of mine, and I'll get up on my soundclick soon, I hope. Thanks


Seek to glorify the One that loves you, in all that you write, and study to show yourself that you are approved by God.

Let's all remember to be thankful and appreciate our own gifts-whatever they are-no matter how big or small.

Are You Walking the Path?
©2007 Monica Yasher

A great sorrow rises inside of me,
for you do not know I have given great gifts.
The gifts I give are regular people,
to create a better world for all.
Each person is irreplaceable,
fulfilling the mission that I call.
Are you walking the path I have laid for you?
Please know I'm talking to your heart, it is true.

A great sorrow rises inside of me,
for you seem to be afraid to do some things.
You think I didn't give you anything,
anything remarkable to do.
As much as the greatest earthly man,
rest assured I do truly love you.
Are you walking the path I have laid for you?
Please know I'm talking to your heart, it is true.

A great sorrow rises inside of me,
for you do not see that I really love you.
You are one of my greatest gifts of all,
to make it better beneath the sun.
You and only your special talents,
can do what is foreseen to get done.
Are you walking the path I have laid for you?
Please know I'm talking to your heart, it is true.

Do you hear me talking to your heart?
Weather it be great or small,
know it is,
it truly is,
true.

Hi, I would just like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving
And a big thank you to Lynn Orloff ( aka..The Rhyming Machine ) for her keen eye/good suggestions.

Thankful
© words by C. Stewart ( Nov. 19, 2007 )


Even though I ain't got stuffing
On this old stale bun
I'm eatin' turkey burgers
Thanksgiving sure is fun

CHORUS...
Sure got a lot to be thankful for
Glad I'm not sleepin' on the floor no more
I got a bed, and a roof over my head
I ain't dead, I got a half a loaf of bread
Sure got a lot to be thankful for

Even though I ain't got money
An my cars in the ditch
I still remember how to laugh
That's what makes me rich

CHORUS...
Sure got a lot to be thankful for
Glad I'm not sleepin' on the floor no more
I got a bed, and a roof over my head
I ain't dead, I got a half a loaf of bread
Sure got a lot to be thankful for

I'd like to thank my landlord
I'd like to thank my lord
I'd like to thank my good friend
Who taught me guitar chords

CHORUS...
Sure got a lot to be thankful for
Glad I'm not sleepin' on the floor no more
I got a bed, and a roof over my head
I ain't dead, I got a half a loaf of bread
Sure got a lot to be thankful for

Here's a little different take on the subject.

JUST A LITTLE .38

by Lee Arten
(c)2007
All Rights Reserved

Came out of nowhere, on a run.
Sharp and shiny sticker in his hand.
Harmin' a woman foremost on his mind.
I wondered, later, what I would have done.
Without that little Smith & Wesson gun.

It's just a little .38.
But its persuasive power can be great.
When things are far from right...

He could have kept on runnin'
Could have cut me, sure enough.
But, suddenly, he wasn't quite as tough.
When he saw the Smith's muzzle gapin,
And the cylinder start turnin.'

It's just a little .38.
But one I'm thankful I can operate.
When I'm out and runnin' late.

He might have found a victim later.
Another tired woman tryin' to get home.
Maybe I made him move a little slower.
Stop, think a minute, and consider.
Before messin' with another mother.

It's just a little .38.
But you'll be thinakful for its weight.
When things go sideways in the night...

It's just a little .38...

Here is one that I wrote in 1996 and my school sings it at Thanksgiving Mass. It's very fun and the kids like it and get to snap. It's also a good vocabulary lesson. When I teach it to the kids we learn the meanings of the big words and examine the rhymes.

Too Many Blessings ©1996 J.M. Richardson

1. Too many blessings to count, We can’t enumerate.
Too many blessings to count, Too much to illustrate.
Too many blessings to count, So let’s just hesitate
and say: Thank you, thank you, Lord. (Snap 3 times)

2. Every woman and man, and every girl and boy
is given the grace that you send And celebrates with joy!
Words can’t express how we feel, But three we will employ
and say: Thank you, thank you, Lord. (Snap 3 times)

3. Everyone, sing out his praise! O Yahweh, you are great!
Everyone, glorify him! Oh, let’s elucidate.
Lift up your hearts to the Lord! Yes, we’ll participate
and say: Thank you, thank you, Lord. (Snap 3X)
Thank you, thank you, Lord! (No snap)

I wrote a quick one on Thanksgiving morning -- forgot about this thread. Not too cheerful, though. I did post it on the MP3 board.

************************************************
Thanksgiving Reggae
(c) Kevin Emmrich 2007

(Verse 1)
Sittin' here on Thanksgiving Day
Trying to be happy for what I have
But as I look around, so many have lost their way
and I can't help but think that's me gone astray

(Chorus)
Thanksgiving Day -- Many have nothin' to be thankful for
Thanksgiving Day -- Others just want more and more
Thanksgiving Day -- When will the children stop sufferin'
... From hunger and crime and fear and bloodthirsty warriors?

(Instrumental Break)

Too depressing for more verses!

Jean: I haven't looked at the new challenge yet, but I'll wander over and see what all the fuss is about (lol), These challenges are a great idea. There is a songwriter section over at the fender guitar forum I belong to that is dying on the vine. Maybe I should try the lyric challenge over there, it sure is a great idea that you have come up with. Thanks for sharing it with us!
