CASUALTY OF TIME.


V
Barley swayed in golden waves
as far as my eyes could see
as if showing me the distance
separating you from me.
V
We loved, we fought, cried and tried
but it could never be
Ev'ry dance was our last dance
then we parted finally
C
Like summer flowers
are casualties of time.
Beautiful while they last
only fleeting by design
We were casualties of time
A casualty of time

V
Tried to think where you are
wherever you could be
Wonder if you feel this pain
or are you happy to be free

B
I've play our song so many times
You are that misty rose
too lovely to forget,
too beautiful to be alone

Folky lyrics with a jazz arrangement.

I found myself meditating to this and it was wonderful Eyes closed relivng all the lyrics that touched on my own life and smiling and then silently weeping for all that was lost.
superb workmanship on this one and it all is a sweeet mood stter.

Vic, Mimmo, Martin, Jane, Calvin, and Matt,

Thanks for the nice comments.

John presented me with a beautiful lyric and a moderately slow vocal melody for a ballad with a definite 3/4 slant, and those are always challenging, but I like the fact that any waltz is also a slower 4/4 swing, and found occasion here to use that fact--you can hear the song start with that slow 4/4 feel, but almost imperceptibly, it becomes a moderate waltz tempo when the right channel guitar enters in the first chorus. There's a simple math formula to figure out the "4/4 swing" equivalent of a moderate 3/4 waltz but I'll save it unless anyone is interested. wink

Thanks again,

Mike
