Here is something different, for your enjoyment (or consternation). I cowrote the lyrics with Alex John. I composed the music and melody. I play this on my archtop guitar. Drop D tuning.

God Is on the Scene
(rewrite by Richard Schletty of Alexander John lyrics)

My life was running empty, I was riddled with heartache
In the mirror I saw a frown that I could never shake
I lived my life in fear with a fist full of rage
But I can tell you now how I left that awful cage

No more tears to shed for all those years of disgrace
I found a real Good Book with every page full of grace
The truth and light o' God can make the dark go away
Like the burning sun that turns the night into day

[bridge 1]
I'm no Nostradamus
But I start to see the promise
When I feel neglected
I know I'm not rejected
Because I got my Lord
He's my sounding board
He's not giving in
We'll rid myself of sin

I don't need to hiss and moan, I don't need to wrangle
Now I'll settle down to pray so I can untangle
No more toe-to-toe with all that hateful stuff
Now I'm givin' bear hugs to the ones I love

I met a real good person after bending toward the light
Gave her an engagement ring and felt I'd reached new heights
Now I am committed to this woman and my Lord
Now I have no need to bleed by twisting inner swords

[bridge 2]
Love can save you, too
If you lose the attitude
Moses weathered storms
And roses have thorns
Instead of being hateful
Try to be grateful
God is on the scene
Shining bright beams

I've broken my bad habits, I finally found a balance
Between my wants and needs, between the cans and can'ts
Between my spirit life and my mortal one
The lyrics keep on flowing as I'm really having fun!

Simple conviction ...
I love the lines in this lyric ... “no need to bleed / by twisting inner swords.”   Very nice.
