The songwriting circle topic for this Monday is Freedom. Here goes:

Destined For Freedom

V1
Well I'm running
Up the hillside
In the light of
An August moon
There's a shadow
On that hillside
And In my head
An olden tune

Chorus
Will I am
Will I am
Destined for freedom

V2
Well I'm rolling
Down the hillside
In a slide of
Seaside sand
There's a boat
And I am rowing
Away , away
To safe haven

Chorus
Will I am
Will I am
Destined for freedom

Bridge
The bull that blow the horn
I know he knew my mom
He didn't move a muscle until morn
By then I was long gone

Chorus
Will I am
Will I am
Destined for freedom

This one's way over my head lol...

"Will I am..."?

"The bull that blow the horn
I know he knew my mom
He didn't move a muscle until morn
By then I was long gone...?"

ahhhhh......ok thanks. I thought it was obvious....but too opaque. opaque and simple- bad combo!

Will I am is a little...silly.
and...the bridge needs more information to wake up the verses...maybe.

Thanks!

Heading for Freedom
V1
Running frightened
Up the hillside
Too much light from
An August moon
Finding shadow
On that hillside
Keep my head low
Don't want to swoon

Chorus
Well I am
While I can
Heading for freedom


V2
I'm top and flying
Down the out side
In a roll of
Seaside sand
There's a boat
And I am rowing
Away , away
To a better land

Chorus
Well I am
While I can
Heading for freedom

Bridge
The hack that blows the horn
In that prison in the valley
Is a favorite cousin to my mom
And promised silence until morning

Chorus
Well I am
While I can
Heading for freedom

Tag
Broken chains
Discarded reins
Destination, Freedom!

I'll add your lines, do 400 more takes and smooth it out later.

I'll try it.

I've been trying to tame open G, AND a slide on my baby finger. I put the slide away...too crash thunk screech etc.

I picked up two chords in this open G tuning from a youtube video. I like the 'rake' technique and am trying that out in the verses now. Fun!

All the best

Thanks Travis. I'll try Japov's line suggest as chorus, and discard Well I am, for starts.
Bill
