Words

Note: This is a song I wrote and recorded as a 45 record in the early 70’s. I was accompanied by my friend and guitar player, Rick Reynolds and bass player, Reese Free in a little storefront studio in Missouri. Though a bit vague, the lyrics  hint at the type of message I strive to include in the songs I write today.

Click title: Words

Words, don’t take much time, to leave your mind, to leave your mind
But feelings, stick to your heart, become a part, become a part
And who’s to know, if you’re traveling down the right side of the road
O you’ve never been told

O people raise your hands up, to the sky
Don’t you ever let go, Don’t ever let go
And keep on reaching ‘til the day you die
Only settle for more

When your truth, becomes a lie
Can you stand to bend, can you stand to cry
And if you ever, change your head
Because of what is said, then you’re living like the dead

‘Cause words, don’t take much time, to leave your mind, to leave your mind
But feelings, stick to your heart, become a part, become a part
And who’s to know, if you’re traveling down the right side of the road
O you’ve never been told
