Take another breath my friend
Don’t go dyin’ in my hand.
Fly on to another plane
Please don’t leave me to explain.

Don’t you drink another round
Play those notes that made us cry.
Let us float on every line
Like we did when we were high….

Come on home again my friend
You just left without as word.
If I’d known I would have told you
All the things you should have heard.

My bright eyed girls you are a flower
But don’t go playing in the yard
For if a wicked wind should blow
It just may never let you go

I came back home to you my mama
But should have stayed a little longer.
But Now I feel you’re with me everywhere
And somehow you’ve made me stronger.

If you sit back down beside us
We could play another round.
Let’s deal the pack and take the gamble
That you win next time around.

Sensational. Vocal Phrasing cuts through well. Format is easy to digest.

Great vocals, lyrics, production and a fine song as well!

Roger McGuinn comes to mind.

I really like the tone on the lead.

Dyin' In My Hand
I like this song - very early 70's retro pop rock-ish feel. Your vocals bring to mind Terry Jacks, who had the #1 hit in 1973 (I think) - a song called "Seasons in the Sun". In fact you sound just like him. Nice guitar work and production/arrangement is very good. Enjoyed!

Expressive tribute to dear friends
Telling a story, in song, of separation-by-death lifts the spirits so much better than low-breath mumbling or cursing. God bless you for sharing this eulogy to lost friends. Good songwriting and mastering.

Sad song
It's sad when you can't even let the girls out to play in the yard.

Nicely played and sung. You really wail out on the guitar at the end.

Dyin' In My Hand
Nice Travelling Wilbury's vibe with the acoustics prominent in the mix and the subtle harmonies. Quality guitar work all round. Good song with some thoughtful lyrics and some dynamic light and shade to provide interest. Like this, Dennis. Thanks.
