To American Songwriter Competition…weeeeeeeeeeeee thanks everyone!!
(1/16/2007 10:29 AM LJW)
(*Male sings verses/Female sings chorus…(Willie Nelson??? He has such a sincere voice…or a lower voice like Keith? or McGraw…?)
(Can you ‘hear’ the gals at a bar, joint, singing the chorus…! I hope so! ljw)

Verse-

The long end of a mahogany bar
A girl all alone- tears ready to fall

Verse-

Eye’s are a lookin’
Eye’s are a glarin’
Oh, she can feel the whole bar a starin’

Verse-

Who was the man that did her wrong?
Who put her at a bar so long-------?

Pre-Chorus:

They heard her say: (stop music for these three words…’talk’ them)

Chorus-

Pour me a glass of his empty promises
A frosty mug of…all that never was
And I will choke it down…
But this is my last round
And I won’t shed a tear
Don’t wanna salt my beer
Just want to raise a cheer
And say goodbye my dearrrrrrrrrrr

Verse-

She lays a $20 down, says to keep the change
Heads back out- to the country range
Saddles up her ride, with her heart and pride
Thinks of how he lied, and how she said goodbyeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Pre-Chorus:

And they heard her say: (stop music for these three words…’talk’ them)

Chorus-

Pour me a glass of his empty promises
A frosty mug of…all that never was
And I will choke it down…
But this is my last round
And I won’t shed a tear
Don’t wanna salt my beer
Just want to raise a cheer
And say goodbye my dearrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Verse-

Her horse is all she trusts, as they kick up the dust
Rides away from him, remembers where she’s been
Never to return again-

Pre-Chorus:

And they heard her say: (stop music for these three words…’talk’ them)

Chorus-

Pour me glass of his empty promises
A frosty mug of…all that never was
And I will choke it down…
But this is my last round
And I won’t shed a tear
Don’t wanna salt my beer
Just want to raise a cheer
And say goodbye my dearrrrrrrrrrr

Ya, this is my last beer…. of empty promise, and all that never was, empty promises, and all that never was, ya this is my last beeeeeeeeeeeer

If Only (I Wrote this song for World Peace and Comfort)

Written By: Lori J. Werch 612.695.4925

If Only

(Lyrics by Lori J. Werch, Music & Vocals by Holly Collison)

Verse

If only I could create the skies
I paint within my rose-filled eyes

If only I could awaken the rain
Before the fire begins to gain

Chorus

If Only If Only

Verse

If only I could erase the tears
Bringing hope to future fears

If only I could harvest the feed
Ending hunger for all in need

Chorus

If Only If Only

Verse

If only I could calm the tides
That wash away the dreams inside

If only I could halt the pain
And bring forgiveness to all who blame

Chorus

If Only If Only

Verse

If only I could light the way
For all the blind who go astray

If only I could lead the way
And answer all who kneel to pray

Chorus

If Only If Only If Only

Bridge

Then we could conquer all above
Through the spirit of great love
Then we could conquer all above
Through the spirit of great love

Chorus

If Only If Only If Only

Verse

If only I could descend from grace
Then disappear, without a trace
If only I could learn from you
Then pass along all the good in you

Life (Twists and Turns Down Endless Lanes

Written By: Lori J. Werch 612.695.4925

Life
(2/8/2007 2:20 PM , Lyrics by Lori J. Werch, Music Recorded in Studio in Nashville, TN)

Chorus
Life is sometimes hard to explain
As it twists and turns down endless lanes
But it will unfold itself you’ll see-----------------------
As it lives to serve all selflessly

Verse
We breathe it
We feel it
We think it
We live it
We share our sorrows our pains & trails, traveling down these journeyed lanes

Verse
Life may take away some things
But it also brings the break of day
Life provides us shelters, --to help our steps along the way

Verse
We breathe it
We feel it
We think it
We live it
We share our sorrows our pains & trials, traveling down these journeyed lanes

Chorus
Life is sometimes hard to explain
As it twists and turns down endless lanes
It will unfold itself you’ll see-------------------shadow voice
As it lives to serve all selflessly

Chorus
Life is sometimes hard to explain
As it twists and turns down endless lanes
It will unfold itself you’ll see-------------------------shadow voice
As it lives to serve all selflessly

Ya, Life
Ya, Life
