All I’ve got are words

I wanna play guitar like Hank tonight
and speak my heart like Waylon sings
Blowin’ wind between the exit signs
of vocal chords and guitar strings

So you could hear my love in every room
that hides in words I’ve written down
A setting sun without guitar strings
Sings lovin’ songs
without a sound

I wanna sing to guitar melodies
you’d hear my love songs
far from home
on every stage from here to Tennessee
through shiny pickups made of chrome

And on the road I’d write in harmony
of spinning wheels and tuned guitars
I’d put some miles between your memories
on a silver eagle with the stars. ©

    Is that the song you played in the truck the other night when we were moving?

    • Na, That one was “lost highway” this one is mine. It”s how I feel sometimes writing. Music is so important to fill those nooks & crannies. Words say my heart, add music and hearts feel my words I guess. Thanks for asking.
