The Hitch Hiker
*

This song is not in a battle


Hi Ampers
Sat down with the view of writing a Country song .
Based on some stories dating back to the 1930s through to present
.This is vers 1 we're aiming for some banjo and tidy up still.
Hope you enjoy a good ghost story.
cheers greg


I’ve travelled these roads so many times
A driver for the firm
Through rainy nights and scorching days I’ve see this old world turn
But once I think that I was touched in a way not of this world
On an endless road dead dog tired
And the pills had lost their burn

When out of he dark and foggy night a hitchhike all dressed in white
Throws her suitcase in the back & says get me out of here

She told me bout her ma & pa how much she wanted home
Played music on the radio said I should not feel alone
We drove through the night & by dawns light she said ‘thanks drop me here’
I helped her with her suitcase could not help but shed a tear.

Not a sin on her face
Oh baby can you find the way home

Well later that summer I happened to be driving down her way
But her folks blanched white like they’d seen a ghost when they heard what I had to say
She’d met her fate 7 years before to that very night
With an old suitcase hitching home & all dressed in white

Out of he dark and foggy night a hitchhike all dressed in white
Not a sin on her face

Her folks gave me a photograph it rides upon my dash
 And all those endless empty miles I know they’re in the past
Some times at night when the fog rolls in don’t feel so all alone
Cause there she is by my side & the radio plays those songs

Out of he dark and foggy night a hitchhike all dressed in white

Great Story - Are you going to do a video, you could probably have a lot of FUN with it. I can just see it now 'A hitch kicker dressed in white'

Look forward to hearing the final version, this still sound pretty good - mix not too bad, the bass guitar needs a Bass Frq' cut.

Keep 'em coming.

Nice country song, guys. Really typical for this genre. Regretably I couldn´t understand all the lyrics.
But it makes me feel like a traveling man on dusty roads.

Really cool! Normally I don't like country (people keep telling me to expand my horizons and I tell them "I'll expand your horizons" with a fist wave.... :P ....) but this was REALLY awesome! I love songs with stories to them. So this was brilliant and I loved the dry vocal aspect and it was just perfect. Filling with emotion and a climax. Very very good

Wow... This is YOUR day today.

Happy Birthday!

If you ever come to Germany, I will safe at least three beers for us.

Maybe you'll get the slogan "Just Three Beer" for a new song?

Cheers
