I wrote this song for an upcoming gig, and just thought I'd get your opinion. This is probably the third or fourth song I've attempted, but only the second that has come to fruition. It follows the typical blues progression, where the verse falls in the I - I - IV - I part, and the chorus is the turnaround. It's simply titled "Rhythm and Blues (It's all good)".



Got yourself a bright red guitar
You've got rhythm but aren't going far
Buddy there's something you missed
Put a little blues on the list

Got to have that rhythm and blues
And then it's all good

Can't get the crowd out of their seats
They got the rhythm but aren't moving their feet
If you wanna knock them out of their shoes
Gotta give your rhythm a little blues

Chorus

You got a beautiful girl to show around
She likes to dress up and get down
You say she's got good rhythm too
Don't forget with rhythm comes blues

Chorus

Your baby packed up and left town
Left you on a train hell-bound
All it takes to beat the pain that ensues
Just put a little rhythm in your blues

Chorus


Whatcha think? I think the chorus still needs a little work.

Sounds like something I'd play a honky tonk.

Not great lyrics, but they are fun lyrics!

I like the lyrics... They are much... Funner, less depressing, less about conspiracys-society-metaphysics and other things then my stuff...

Also, they are better... :P

:D

Quite honestly, we don't really have to write about the bad things in our lives all the time. Sometimes, you just want some fun lyrics.

For instance, Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar" is just about a good time at a bar.

It's not bad. I, like the others, agree that it is "Fun"

i really like your lyrics. not only are you talking about blues, but you gave it a real good explanation of what blues is to the soul - the good things, the bad things, blues is there kinda like a good friend! way to go!

"I ain't as good as I once was" I lmao every time I listen to that song, it's one of my favorite Toby Keith songs.
