IF I MAY BE SO BOLD

Description
I found this lovely wind section loop as I was tinkering about ( in the garage, so to speak ). Two sets of lyrics that had been floating around in my scrapbook for years came together and the rest seemed to follow the music. Hope you all like it as much as I do.

Lyrics
IF I MAY BE SO BOLD

A gospel chorus gently hums
A lonely guitar somewhere strums
Beneath the street the subway thrums
Across the rooftops evening comes

And one of these days I’ll settle down
And buy a cottage out of town
I get so tired, running around
I need my feet back on the ground

So I’ll say to you
Thank you for being true
And should you be ever feeling blue
Be sure that there’s a bed for two

And if your dreams have little ones
Lots of daughters, lots of sons
We’ll sit and watch them, as we grow old
So many stories to be told
And Madam, if I may be so bold
I’d love to have you there

I really like this
I can almost Richard Harris the actor singing this on film. This really has a feel of a guy with a lot of wisdom and fame such as one like Richard Harris. This really has a retro-wise, so full of melody.

A really nice listen richard!

Thanks ol' bud. I felt I was looking at the past through my future or the other way round. I think classical music is always deep in my system. It has a folksy side, too, don't ya think?

Interesting that, I used to have a nickname, 'The Whimsical Inquisition'. A touch of whimsy goes a long way.
