Description
As I've gone through the deleted songs I still wanted to remix and post, I realized I had this one still to re-submit. I posted it originally in October 2007 as a guitar, harp, vocal C&W song. Ed "sloparts" Wemmerus, who had joined MJ a few months earlier offered to add bass and drums. Well, I was stoked. I had already become a fan of the #1 Country guy here. Little did I know then how great and varied his talents were.

I posted our collab in December around the time he posted his own song called "Lonely Hearts". He commented that our two songs might be two lost tracks from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. That gave me a chuckle. I'm gonna miss his good humor... his music, and most of all his warm and humble personality.

Thanks Ed, for sitting in.

Lyrics
Lonely nights, I've been spending too long
Lonely songs, I've been singing to the dawn.

Since you left me high and dry
What was I to do?
All I got is memories of
Spending time with you.

I'm sitting here waiting for the sun to shine,
Wishing I could sleep just to pass the time.
Lonely nights, lonely songs.

Lonely nights, I've been spending too long
Lonely songs, I've been singing to the dawn.

seems just like yesterday
We were having fun
Sure we fought, but then we'd kiss,
And you would call me Hon...
We'd go out each and every night
And we would paint the town.
Now all I do is cry and moan,
And wear this silly frown.

I'm sitting here waiting for the sun to shine,
Wishing I could sleep just to pass the time.
Lonely nights, lonely songs.



Since you left me high and dry
What was I to do?
All I got is memories of
Spending time with you.

I'm sitting here waiting for the sun to shine,
Wishing I could sleep just to pass the time.
Lonely nights, lonely songs.

Lonely nights I've been spending too long.

the song came together real nice after Ed jumped in. The mixing improved and of course with bass and drums, it sounded like a band. Really nice comments, thanks.

Nice post Jack
This is a really nice song, and Ed added so much with his bass and drums, but the standout performance here is Ed's mix. I'd forgotten how well he could make songs sound.
A lovely country tune - and a nice homage to Ed.
Cheers from Oz,

Bouncy and pleasant
Sort of goes along like an old jalopy, down a country road, with a very gentle sense of regret, if at all.

Great way to get over negative feelings!

Great title for a classic country song, loved it! Thanks so much Dadai.2 for posting it for me with the mention of Ed sitting in with you, excellent job you two!! that's a good chuckle ... two lost songs... thanks for passing along his humor too, and from what I hear from everyone and read in his comments on other posts, a humble man with a warm personality.
