Emily ~ an original and newly written song. A work in progress.

I had a song idea about noon and after lunch, ended up with a totally different song done by two o'clock. I whistled where the harp should have been played.

It's a work in progress and TOTALLY AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL except the parts about being in the Navy and everything else.

Thanks, Andries.  That Ricky Nelson song is the older more traditional version.   Good pic of that guitar he was playing.   Good movie too.  Ricky was really good and over time became under appreciated.

Thanks, Lefty.   I like inster mentals.  I love a good story.  Yup. I do kind of remember that song in the link.

Thanks, AGP.   It is totally autobiographical except that my name is not Jake, I was not in the navy and nothing else in the song is true.

Got all the makings of a great song Jake, but it already sounds mighty fine to me! :-)
