Original Song: ‘In the Morning’

Here is a folk song I wrote after listening to some William Fitzsimmons jams my friend Doug Bauman burned for me. It’s hopefully going to be part of a project with producer erbaKnight.

I usually write different genres, like jazz and soul, but I like the simplicity of this tune. This is the first draft, so we’ll see how it changes as we go along. I just recorded this video to give erbaKnight an idea of what he’s got to work with.

Here are the lyrics and chords:

C
didn’t take a second look
Am
i felt different from the start
C——————–G
i can feel when you are near
C
you speak into my core
Am
and you listen to my heart
C———————G
look in my eyes a million years

C——————Am
your hands are touching mine
C——————-G
your skin is touching mine
C——————Am
your lips they softly smile
C——————-G
we lay here for a while

——————C———Am
and my body goes, oh oh oh oh
——————C———G
and my heart goes, oh oh oh oh
——————C———Am
and my soul goes oh oh oh oh
——————C———G
in the morning, i find my home

C
you finally come back
Am
from your quest to find your self
C————G
i run into your arms
C
you’re a real boy now
Am
but need a place to rest your head
C———————-G
since you’re here, we might as well

C——————Am
your hands are touching mine
C——————-G
your skin is touching mine
C——————Am
your lips they softly smile
C——————-G
we lay here for a while

——————C———Am
and my body goes, oh oh oh oh
——————C———G
and my heart goes, oh oh oh oh
——————C———Am
and my soul goes oh oh oh oh
——————C———G
in the morning, i find my home
