I do have a melody for this song.... (which I'm not sure I like).. and I have a chorus (which I think may be weak?) I actually have 2 different choruses, but here is the first version. This is a real place by the way. (smile). We all see them at every little town off every off ramp all over America. I think there is a more common thread, but can't seem to put my finger on it.


At Eddie's Market & Hardware

 in Pegram, TN

six tiny booths by the deli in the back

that's the place where they all meet



The trucks start pullin in

trying to beat the sun that's comin up

old men in F250's arrive 

for the meeting of the breakfast club



CHORUS

It's like a party with coffee

and everybody knows your name

and they still like you and claim you

just because you came



And they can and they do and they will so can you

If you wanna know what's up

you'll have to wait your turn and hope

for a seat at the breakfast club



Mr. Brown and Jack sit down

and the rest just wander in

like a silent obligation

they all agreed to way back when



Eddie puts out the American flag

and everyone grabs a cup

it's half past eight and you're all late

for the meeting of the breakfast club



CHORUS

Bill wears a cap from Vietnam
Tattered, faded and used
Patches and tags hang on the wall
With Johnny's ribbons from WWII... smile

I love the lyric. I used to travel a lot for work and often grab breakfast at McDonald's. There was very often a gathering of this sort going on. I like JAPOV's suggestion about the hats too.

Yup, there everywhere!!! I just want the chorus to be really strong and actually "say" something about these groups that are all over the country.

I like the idea. You're right, I've seen breakfast clubs all over. I think that your verses painted a picture more than your chorus. I think you have something.

Thank you Lesleedp ------------Version #2 of the chorus

CHORUS
WE love those guys, they got your back
I lost a tool, I need a jump
Free advice, imagine that

I love those men, who raise their hand
Solve all the problems of the world
When we’re all in a jam, (yeah)
