No Room Left For Me - a new tune

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

It always seems like it's been forever ...

Almost done with this one. Would like your thoughts and critique. The recording was done a couple days ago and does not reflect a small bit of rewrite.

No Room Left For Me 05-26-2013 - CAPO 1 in Am

(note: I'm tuned down a full step)

Am................................................G

Didn't see the storm clouds rollin' in

G.........................

Til they burst open

F.........................................

All I carried inside my heart

................................................Am

Was either soakin' wet or broken

I concede the mistakes I have made

She knew me better

Question's race inside my head

I never got the chance to ask her

G..............................................Am.

Rain crow sings a mournful melody

F..................................................C....................G

Written in a note by one who said she'd never leave

C........................G........Dm.....................

No room left for trying, no room to be free

F....................................

She left no room for doubt

G.............................Am

She left no room for me

[bREAK - INTRO REPEAT]

Packed up my heart and hit the road

Didn't know where I was headin'

Seemed like every turn I made

Turned into a dead end

Caught a glimpse of raven hair

In the rear view mirror

By the time the red light changed

She was gone forever

[CHORUS]

[bREAK - INTRO REPEAT]

[bRIDGE]

C.......................G.........F......................Am

I gave her all my heart, wrapped in her spell

G.....................................................................Am

Passion in the night doesn't hear the weather bell

[bREAK - INTRO REPEAT]

[CHORUS]

[bREAK - INTRO REPEAT]

Hey Champ! How'ya goin;? It has been forever. Glad to hear you still creating great original songs and performing them so well.

I hear you channeling Gordon LIghtfoot with this one, Les. And I liked the lyric change at the end compared with the lyrics you posted.

This is high quality music, as always, and you know I like the acoustic backing plus the occasional harmony to give it extra life - it catches the ear if that is something anyone else understands - I always have done and probably always will, e.g. Everley Brothers and Simon and Garfunkel from way back when I first heard proper music..

I like the pictures you paint in the lyrics - I can almost see the music video version.

Hope all is well at Froggy Bottom. :)

Hiya Carol!!!

Thanks for your thoughts. Was hoping you'd chime in. :) Glad you liked the tune. It's since gone through a little more rewrite. But we trudge on and more new songs in the offing.

See ya on the tour bus

Hey champ, can you do me a big favor? I don't seem to find the time to play guitar - could you do my practicing for me? I'd really appreciate it. :)

Hi Les,

I can't open the file for some reason. I'm on a mac if that means anything...

Hope you're doing well.
