A BAYOU KIND OF NIGHT

VS. 1
DRINKIN' TENNESSEE WHISKEY FROM A MASON JAR
DIDN'T THINK I'D GO AND FALL APART
YOU HAD TO LEAVE AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS
THOSE CITY LIGHTS AIN'T ALL THEY SEEM
YOU COULD BE IN LOVIN' COMFORT
I NEED YOU, ... ON THE BAYOU TONIGHT

CHORUS
AND I'M STILL THINKIN' ABOUT IT
HOW I TOOK YOU FOR GRANTED
I SHOULD'A HELD ON TIGHTER
IN THOSE LOUISIANA NIGHTS
WHEN WE WERE KNEE DEEP IN THE BAYOU
NOW I JUST CAN'T FORGET YOU
I'LL LEAVE THE PORCH LIGHT ON
I NEED YOU, ... FOR A BAYOU KIND OF NIGHT

VS. 2
WE USED TO HANG ON SATURDAYS
HAVIN' OUR OWN CAJUN HOLIDAY
LOVIN' N'AWLINS SHRIMP CREOLE
TOGETHER WE WERE ROCK AND ROLL
PRETTY DANCIN' WARM BROWN EYES
I FELT THE HURT, WHEN YOU SAID GOODBYE

CHORUS
AND I'M STILL THINKING ABOUT IT
HOW I TOOK YOU FOR GRANTED
I SHOULD'A HELD ON TIGHTER
IN THOSE LOUISIANA NIGHTS
WHEN WE WERE KNEE DEEP IN THE BAYOU
NOW I JUST CAN'T FORGET YOU
I'LL LEAVE THE PORCH LIGHT ON
I NEED YOU, ... FOR A BAYOU KIND OF NIGHT
FOR A BAYOU KIND OF NIGHT

BRIDGE
COULD'A BEEN MY BAD BOY IMAGE, COULD'A BEEN MY SLY WINK
THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN A THOUSAND THINGS CAUSIN' YOU TO THINK
THAT I WASN'T READY ...

CHORUS
AND I'M STILL THINKING ABOUT IT
HOW I TOOK YOU FOR GRANTED
I SHOULD'A HELD ON TIGHTER
IN THOSE LOUISIANA NIGHTS
WHEN WE WERE KNEE DEEP IN THE BAYOU
NOW I JUST CAN'T FORGET YOU
I'LL LEAVE THE PORCH LIGHT ON, YEAH

AND I'M STILL THINKING ABOUT IT
HOW I TOOK YOU FOR GRANTED
I SHOULD'A HELD ON TIGHTER
IN THOSE LOUISIANA NIGHTS
WHEN WE WERE KNEE DEEP IN THE BAYOU
NOW I JUST CAN'T FORGET YOU
I'LL LEAVE THE PORCH LIGHT ON
I NEED YOU, ... FOR A BAYOU KIND OF NIGHT
FOR A BAYOU KIND OF NIGHT
FOR A BAYOU KIND OF NIGHT

I really enjoyed this all the way through......Liked it a lot

You had me from the first note. I loved the vocals and Drums.
Your lyrics tell a great story.
Did you like specific instrumental parts--vocals and Synth 1) Does my intro make you want to hear the song? yes 2) Does my opening line draw you in and make you want to hear more? yes 3) Is my melody interesting? yes 4) Does my melody get stuck in your head? yes 5) Does my chorus stand out and take the song to a higher place? yes.

Reminds of early 70's. Like the down home feel and vivd vocals.

Interesting intro. Great harmonies. Good tune, well played. Obvious talent, with feeling.
