Song #9 Week #9 2012 Song A Week Challenge

We are into the third month of 2012, and while I still don't know if I'll make it to the end of the year, my confidence grows with each passing week. The schedule of posting a song every Monday has helped give structure to the challenge, and the creativity continues to flow. Whether I make it to the end of the year or not, this exercise has definitely changed my approach to songwriting.

For the month of March, I think I'm going to throw a little extra spin on things. I am going to write all of my songs in open G tuning, and focus on a Blues style of writing. I think I may try to devote a couple of months of songs to different music genres. You know, just to make this challenge a little more difficult...or easier. I'm not sure which.

Anyway, here's this week's song. A barn burning blues jam. Enjoy!

i've got a woman who knows
a woman who knows
just what i need now

i've got a woman
no she won't take no
she knows just what I need now x2

some days are long and hard
i'm worn down and battle scarred
can't wait til I get back home
and in my own backyard

get home late at night
she knows that i ain't feelin right
she puts her arms around me
and squeezes me real tight

she loves me up and down
she's got my head spinnin' round
she makes me feel like I could go
take over this damn town

when i'm feelin' low
and fell like i've got to go
she won't hold me back
No No no no no no no
