BandCountryPop

I write mostly Traditional Country Style songs that relay an emotion and a story to the listener and will sometimes write a song just for the fun of it! I try to demo only my very best works and I am trying to remain flexable with my lyrics and hooks. I am a Songwriter, I dont sing in these demos

Biography

My influences are Josh Turner, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Vern Gosden, Conway Twitty, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Reba and Kitty Wells. I have written poetry for years and through my wifes encouragement I deceided to try writing songs. My dream is like any other songwriters, I want to have an established or up and comming Vocalist/Band find my songs worthy of being preformed to the public.

Lyrics

Shelter Me Within Your Wings

Written By: Michael E. Bacon

Shelter Me Within Your Wings

I still recall the wonder, that look of sweet surprise,
The innocence and thunder, heaven promised in your eyes.
All the trust you ever had, and how you gave it all to me,
On the sixteenth of November, way back in fifty-three

Chorus:
Your a tender hearted angel, you bet your love against my pain,
To me you will always be, that sweet girl who took my name!
We'll walk through life together, face each day and all it brings,
I always turn to you my love, shelter me within your wings!

When I look back I remember, how you blessed me with a son,
Your love is my salvation, and your still my only one!
Lord, I never meant to hurt you, never meant to bring you tears,
Its always been your loving smile, I've treasured all these years.

Chorus:
Sitting here with these memories, of the love we shared before,
It takes all I have inside me, just to walk across that floor,
Now I'm standing next to you, and its so hard to say goodbye,
The lord came down to set you free, so spread your wings and fly!

Final Chorus:
One last time I'm going to kiss your lips, and look upon your face,
I know our love is strong enough, to reach me from that better place!
Once again I'll turn to you my love, for the comfort your love brings!
Please help me through this loneliness, shelter me within your wings!
Darlin help me through this loneliness, shelter me within your..........wings!

GOOD-BYE MEANS LETTING GO

Written By: MICHAEL E. BACON

Goodbye Means Letting Go

Music Box

Lord I know your watching, from your throne up there on high,
I'm here standing by her grave, and again I'm asking...why?

Intro Riff...

I know we haven't talked much, since that night two years ago
Questions you wont answer Lord, things I really need to know!
Like why did you foresake me, when on bended knees I prayed
Still you took my little girl, and just let him walk away!
How do I keep from hating, when he chose to drink and drive!
Lord tell me there's a reason, that you left that man alive

Chorus:
I still see her in my dreams each night, I hear her laughter on the breeze
All my heart has left to hold , are her precious memories
So Lord give her all my love, and please make sure she knows,
That I couldn't say good-bye, because good-bye ... good-bye means letting go.

Riff:

And Lord when you called her name, oh did all Your Angels cry?
And were they there to guide her, as she soared up to the sky?
Lord tell me when You held her, did You wash away her fear?
Is she bein' loved up there, just like she was loved down here?
Preacher says to set her free, say good-bye and let her go,
But I can't chase her away, from the window of my soul.

Repeat Chorus:
Riff:

Lord I'm sure You know about, all the Hell that I've been through
Still I've come to realize, that my little girl is safe with You
I'm standing here before You, please let all Your mercy flow,
My heart just isn't ready, for good-byes or letting go
You said we'll live forever, when it's time to leave this world
Yes Lord she'sYour angel now, but she's still ...my little girl.

Riff:

If good-bye means letting go, letting go would mean she's gone,
Her love's still safe inside me, and that love goes on and on......
No...I'll never say good-bye....
Because good-bye .... good-bye means letting go!

Riff:

I miss you sweetheart...

Final Riff Fade.

ANGEL WITH THE BLUES

Written By: MICHAEL E. BACON

ANGEL WITH THE BLUES

THERES AN ANGEL SITTIN OVER THERE,
RUNNING NERVOUS FINGERS THROUGH HER HAIR,
THINKIN' SHOULD SHE GO OR SHOULD SHE STAY
FROM THE PAIN AND SORROW IN HER EYES
THERES A LONELINESS I RECOGNIZE
SHE'S ABOUT TO THROW IT ALL AWAY

SHE'S BEEN ON A JOURNEY BACK IN TIME.
JUST SORTING MEMORIES IN HER MIND,
WONDERIN' HOW OUR LOVE COULD GO SO WRONG.
ALL HER FEELINGS I CAN UNDERSTAND,
AS I TAKE MY OLD GUITAR IN HAND,
GOING TO SAY I'M SORRY WITH MY SONG!

1ST CHORUS:
SHOULD I BE SINGING "HELLO DARLIN"
OR SING "UNCHAINED MELODY"?
JOSH TURNERS "JUST TO BE YOUR MAN",
OR "SETTING FANCY FREE"
THE BANDS BEHIND ME WAITIN'
BUT IT'S SO DAMN HARD TO CHOOSE,
WHICH SONG I SHOULD BE SINGING
TO AN ANGEL WITH THE BLUES!

SOMETIMES MUSIC IS A HEALING THING
WITH A SONG AND SIX OLD GUITAR STRINGS,
IT TELLS US WHAT WE HAVE AND STAND TO LOOSE
AND WHEN THE MELODY STARTS FLOWIN
THERE'S A COMFORT JUST FROM KNOWIN',
LOVE GIVES SECOND CHANCES IF WE CHOOSE.

CHORUS 2
SHOULD I BE SINGING "DESPARADO",
OR SING "WHISKEY LULLIBY"
"HE STOPPED LOVIN' HER TODAY"
OR "UNDER AMIRILLO SKYS"
THE BANDS BEHIND ME WAITIN'
BUT IT'S SO DAMN HARD TO CHOOSE,
WHICH SONG I SHOULD BE SINGING
TO AN ANGEL WITH THE BLUES!

I KNOW MANY WORDS AND MELODIES,
AND FORGIVENESS COMES IN SMALL DEGREES
I NEVER SHOULD OF MADE THAT ANGEL CRY
SO THIS SONG MAY BE MY ONLY CHANCE
TO FIND THAT SPARK OF SWEET ROMANCE
WILL SHE SAY I LOVE YOU OR GOODBYE?

CHORUS 3
SHOULD I BE SINGING "LOVE ME TENDER",
OR SING "LIFE TURNED HER THAT WAY"
THERE'S "SEVEN SPANISH ANGELS",
CONWAYS "DONT TAKE IT AWAY"
THE BANDS BEHIND ME WAITIN'
BUT IT'S SO DAMN HARD TO CHOOSE,
WHICH SONG I SHOULD BE SINGING
TO AN ANGEL WITH THE BLUES!

SHOULD I BE SINGING "HELLO DARLIN"
OR SING "UNCHAINED MELODY"?
JOSH TURNERS "JUST TO BE YOUR MAN",
OR "SETTING FANCY FREE"
I KNOW ALL OF HER FAVORITE SONGS
LORD PLEASE HELP ME TO CHOOSE!
WHICH SONG I SHOULD BE SINGING ...
TO AN ANGEL WITH THE BLUES!
TO AN ANGEL WITH THE BLUES!

OVER MY SHOULDER

Written By: MICHAEL E. BACON

Over My Shoulder

He was my father friend and teacher,
All my life he was a preacher
I heard him called a simple man,
Both a genius and a fool,

He said just watch that far horizon,
And if heavens what your eyes on,
Take some wisdom from an old man
When life gets the best of you

Not one of us can see the future,
In this life you can't be too sure
The path your on will lead you home,
When the ways so hard to tell,

You see each day your gettin' older,
That old devils gettin bolder,
Well sometimes he'll offer heaven,
Just to trick you into hell!

Chorus:
If I looked over my shoulder, Lord what would I see?
Would there be demons or angels beckonin me?
Beause the path leading to heaven,
I dont know so well
If I looked over my shoulder now lord, ...
Would I see heaven or hell?

So many years he loved that bottle,
Lived his life sinnin' at full throttle,
Until the day that he woke up,
Facing ten years in a cell.

Sometimes a man, he has to stumble,
Just to learn how to be humble,
He looked back on a wasted life
Then onto bended knees he fell,

Chorus:
If I looked over my shoulder, Lord what would I see?
Would there be demons or angels beckonin me?
Beause the path leading to heaven,
I dont know so well
If I looked over my shoulder now lord, ...
Would I see heaven or hell?

He said the path into tomorrow,
Could lead to joy or lead to sorrow,
If you find you lost your way,
Cant see the path beyond the bend,

Pause awhile there for reflection,
And then pray for HIS direction,
And if your still uncertain,
Just look back at where youve been.

Final Chorus:
If I looked over my shoulder, Lord what would I see?
Would there be demons or angels beckonin me?
Beause the path leading to heaven, I dont know so well
If I looked over my shoulder now lord, ...
Would I see heaven or hell?
I'll just pause here for reflection,
And I'll pray for HIS direction,
Beause the path leading to heaven,
I dont know so well.....
If I looked over my shoulder now lord, ...
Would I see heaven or hell?
Heaven or hell?
