Got To Go(Love You So) (MJ Coffee Shop)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Well, this is a redo of a song I did some time ago. I posted a "demo" just about a year ago(http://www.macjams.com/song/32312), and as you can hear that a long time ago! I have had a substancial upgrade of my studio since then, and learned alot more about recording.

The song it self is based on a ukulele riff, which I stumbled over. After playing it two times the lyrics came into my head, and hey presto; a song! But as you can see it took a year before a recorded a decent version..

I haven't had the time to stop by MJ for a while, so I haadn't seen the MJ Coffee Shop. But this song seems to fit to the concept, so I decided to let it be my contribution to the coffee shop.

Have a listen, and let me know what you think. Comments are much appreciated!!

Lyrics
Got To Go (Love You So)

I crossed the valley as the sun went down
I love you baby, and I want you around
But I got to go

In the evening when the sunlight 's gone
I sit in a town a long way from home
Cause I got to go

When you wake up early in the morning
I an leave you with out a warning
Cause I got to go

And if you try to look for me now
Don't you worry, I'm coming home for chow
Cause I love you so

E. Swensen aka, The Chiefs (2007)

Actually I didn't intend to have bass on this song. But when I listened through it I felt that there was something missing. I went back and recorded the bass, and voila; the song was complete!

Great song! I loved hearing the various instruments and a good harmonica is always welcome. Your voice sounds nice and smooth on this. I'll have to check out the original and compare.
This definitely sounds good in my ears.

Well done.
