I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY

 

HEARD THE HONKY TONK
REAL EARLY IN MY LIFE
ALL THOSE OLD RECORDS
MY DADDY USED TO PLAY
REALLY TOUCHED MY SOUL
BECAME PART OF ME
AND I STILL PLAY THEM
NOW AND THEN TODAY

(CHORUS)

SO!
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
CAUSE THAT’S MY KIND
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND

JUST PLAY THAT DOBRO
OR THAT STEEL GUITAR
YEH THAT BLUEGRASS BEAT
SURE KNOWS HOW TO JIVE
KNOW I’LL NEVER FIND
ANYTHING BETTER
TODAYS MUSIC DON’T
SEEM TO HAVE THAT SAME DRIVE

(CHORUS)

(SOLO)

SO DURING THOSE DAYS
WHEN I’M LOSING FAITH
IT REALLY SEEMS LIKE
IT’S MY ONLY FRIEND
AND I KNOW WHEN IT
COMES TO THE CRUNCH
IT’ S THE ONE THING ON
WHICH I CAN DEPEND

(CHORUS)

A good strong hook which could be catchy with the right melody. I'm not sure that many country singers are looking for this kind of thing any more. Maybe places where the more old time country is still king, like Ireland?

I don't think bluegrass knows how to jive. The use of "jive" there seems a bit weird.

Hi Gavin

Thanks for the comment, glad you picked up on the bluegrass/jive lines. To be honest they're the main reason I put it up as I've always known they didn't match but couldn't find anything else.

However with Larry adding his little change, it seemed to get me in the right mindset and I came up with this. Think this has cracked it, thoughts please.

NOW TAKE THAT DOBRO
ADD IN SOME FIDDLE
YOU GET OL’ BLUEGRASS
HEY THAT’S GOT IT MADE
KNOW I’LL NEVER FIND
ANY BETTER SOUND
NO OTHER MUSIC’S
EVER HIT THE GRADE

This might work, although it changes the rhyme scheme from the first verse

NOW PLAY THAT DOBRO
AND STEEL GUITAR
 BLUEGRASS MUSIC
STIRS MY HEART
OH, I LIKE THE BLUES
AND ROCK AND ROLL
BUT COUNTRY MUSIC'S
IN MY SOUL

If you wanted to keep the same rhyme scheme:

OH, I LIKE THE BLUES
AND ROCK AND ROLL
BUT GIVE ME THAT DOBRO
AND STEEL GUITAR
BLUEGRASS MUSIC'S
IN MY SOUL
IT MOVES MY FEET
AND SPEAKS TO MY HEART

Like the ideas but I'm not keen on it actually naming other genres so here's my spin on it

NOW TAKE THAT DOBRO
ADD IN SOME FIDDLE
YOU GET OL’ BLUEGRASS
HEY THAT'S MY HEART'S STOLE
KNOW I’LL NEVER FIND
ANY BETTER SOUND
THAT OLD WESTERN SWING
REALLY STIRS MY SOUL

Hey, Roger. Just one quick thought. Do you think it might be more effective if you settled on one genre that the singer is devoted to, either bluegrass or western swing? There's no reason at all that someone shouldn't like both, but it might make it more focused and hint at the style of music that would belong with it.

Ok had another play around with a few lines. Also took out the third verse, replaced it with a bridge and changed a line in the second chorus then extended the final chorus.

I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY

HEARD THE HONKY TONK
REAL EARLY IN LIFE
ALL THOSE OLD RECORDS
MY DAD USED TO PLAY
TOUCHED SO DEEP INSIDE
BECAME PART OF ME
AND I STILL PLAY THEM
NOW AND THEN TODAY

(CHORUS)

SO!
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
CAUSE THAT’S MY KIND
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND

THEN I HEARD DOBRO
BANJO AND FIDDLE
THOSE SOUNDS OF BLUEGRASS
THEY HAD MY HEART STOLE
WHICHEVER YOU PLAY
THERE’S NO BETTER SOUND
THAT OLD WESTERN SWING
REALLY STIRS MY SOUL

(CHORUS)

SO!
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
I LOVE EACH KIND
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND

JUST PLAY ME A SONG
WHATEVER THE STYLE
I’LL LET YOU DECIDE
THEY ALL MAKE ME SMILE
LET’S FORGET OUR WOES
FOR A LITTLE WHILE

(SOLO)

(CHORUS)

SO!
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
MAKE MINE COUNTRY
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
CAUSE THAT’S MY KIND
I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND

I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
I LOVE EACH KIND

I’LL TAKE MINE COUNTRY
IF YOU DON’T MIND
