Description
Im having a young gentleman over to play (jam) tomorrow night.. I would like to get him on his RESONATOR for this tune, SO YES this is totally a work in progress.. by the time I lay down some dobro (RESONATOR) some shaker.. perhaps a ukulele or just another guitar track capoed up around the 7th fret.. a maracca.. a hand drum, then I`ll resing it and lay down some backing vocals.. it should turn into a nice little (UPLIFTING tune)...?

Lyrics
She works all night yeah she works every night
dying an trying to get ahead
and all she needs is the radio
jus a thing to take her away ,from pain n the daily grind
an when day is done.. an she goes home to no one
she turns the tunes on right by her bed
she says thank you lord for the music
she says thanks lord hey lord Im doin the best I can

for 15 years he`s worked the railyard
and you know that he`s never missed not a single day
but friday night is the right time
to get a little freak on a drink on its his time to play
and when the band gets up n starts playin that tune
he knows he`ll be on that dancfloor real soon...
and says THANK you THANK you ahh for the music
thank you .....

when she walked in to bar room
he thought now theres a girl , that I`d like to meet
and when she walked straight to the jukebox
he thought if she plays my song that would be sweet
an when he heard those chords .
he jumped up on the floor and said THANK YOU THANK YOU
ahh for the music
she said thank you thank you for being there

I like you voice
Good as is. But it would be cool to see what you can come up with. Guitar sounds nice. I like the recording. I'd like to hear a bit more of that lead you used for the intro!

Nice
