What Matters Most Of All

Writers: Roy Harris and Tom Wilson
Demo: Kevin Wicker, Progress Nashville

I go to work and pay the bills
And mow the grass and such
But when it comes to showing love
Iím really not that much
I usually buy you flowers
On our special days
I thought that it might make up
For the words that I donít say

I told you that Iíd love you
Until the end of time
Joked that I would let you know
If I ever changed my mind
Sometimes I find it hard to say
What Iím feeling all the time
So Iíll try to do the best I can
And put it in these lines

(Chorus)
Youíre the cream in my coffee
The sugar in my tea
If they split me down the middle
Youíd be the better part of me
Thereís so many things in life that matter
But still I canít recall
Oh but having you beside me
Is what matters most of all

Youíre the mother of my children
My lover and my friend
If you put us on a shelf
We'd make perfect bookends
When you look at the big picture
I know Iím really small
But in my world you are the one
That matters most of all

Youíre the cream in my coffee
The sugar in my tea
If they split me down the middle
Youíd be the better part of me
Thereís so many things in life that matter
But still I canít recall
Oh but having you beside me
Is what matters most of all

Instrumental break


Tag
There Ďs so many things in life that matter
But still I canít recall
Oh but having you beside me
Is what matters most of all

Thanks Michele, glad you like it. We wrote this a couple of years for a Valentine contest (we didn't win) and I'm just now getting around to have it demoed.

I heard this one before. As a Kevin Wicker example I think. Liked it then like it now.
You know, there's just something about some country music that really gets the emotions going. It's gotta be the sound.
Good job.


I have music for all of my songs and they vary from rock to country to folk and everywhere in between. (except rap)
