In that Sweet by and by
*

This song is not in a battle


Here's a song I've been meaning to record for a year now. The recording quality could be better but it's a start. Let me know what you think. I performed this once and someone pointed out that the first two lines are ripped from a CCR song, I guess  that means I'm just as good a songwriter..?

There's a place
Up ahead where I'm going
Just as fast
As my feet can fly
In that warm mountain air
Where I won't have no care
I'm going home. To that sweet
By and by

In that sweet by and by
to which I'm bound
Far away
Up in heaven above
Where the cool waters flow
And the sweet grasses grow
I'm going home in that sweet by and by

I'm gonna meet all those friends I've been missing
Who made their way a long time before
Sniff that perfume rich breeze
'neath the magnolia trees
I'll be home in that sweet by and by

I'll be home when my loved ones surround me
I'll be home in the songs and the hymns
No more trials to bear
Just my faith and this prayer
To find my home in that sweet by and by

WOW!!! a real nice sweet song ... constructed so well ... you just want to go back to the chorus each time ... i saw the lyrics as i was following and thought you weren't going to repeat the chorus but u did ...and its lovely for it...thank you...

on the recording front ... i guess you are recording on one pass to a single microphone.. the recording quality is good . and the playing and singing great..... but perhaps you could look at where you place the microphone to get the best balance between sweet guitar and sweeter voice. perhaps stop after a few bars performing and listen back to yourself and move around so you get a nice (full) balance.

im not sure if I've reviewed your songs before .... but this one and another you have recently posted are lovely. you are a songwriter of real talent...more please    yep i loved this one
