Charles Edmund Carter knows how to do Western Swing.

    - Tirk Wilder - Broadjam Pro Reviewer

For those who want to hear an up-tempo Texas swing number this one is good to tap your foot on the floor listening to it or dancing in a club around the floor anytime to the band of musicians playing on stage. The concept is fair to midland in it is an idea of a Light At The End of the Tunnel and I liked listening to it a few times. This song calls out to move as most Texas Swing style song are often good. Keep writing and keep submitting to Broadjam Pro reviewers but don't forget to ask a specific question any of us may answer. I look forward to more of your work to review.

Lyrics

The Tunnel

(Verse 1)
I just woke up have no idea where I am
Never been so lonely damp and cold
It's pitch black but I think I'm in a tunnel
I can feel the railroad ties I smell the mold

(Verse 2)
I don't have any idea how I got in here
Not a clue how I got tied up in this sack
The last thing I remember my wife poured me a drink
Had to step out but said she'd be right back

So I pick a direction and just keep on walking
I know that I'll see there's just got to be

(Chorus)
A light at the end of the tunnel
Got to get there before I go insane
There's light at the end of the tunnel
I just hope it's not an oncoming train

(Verse 3)
Hoping I can figure out just what to do
A brilliant way to get me out of here
Some people say I'm just to optimistic
But it helps me to alleviate my fear

(Verse 4)
The angel on my shoulder says walk straight ahead
The devil in me says the other way
I'll just have to rely on intuition
And not listen to what either of them say

So I pick a direction and just keep on walking
I know that I'll see there's just got to be

(Chorus)
A light at the end of the tunnel
Got to get there before I go insane
There's a light at the end of the tunnel
I just hope it's not an oncoming train

(Bridge)
There's a lot of time to ponder how I got into this mess
My wife and I are going through tough times I must confess
She's hanging with her high school buddy
The Navy kicked him out
I bet he learned to tie some fancy knots
Like the ones around that sack I was lucky to get out

(Instrumental)

(Verse 5)
Can't say how long I've been here in this tunnel
More than a minute probably less than a week
I think that was a bat that just flew past me
Might mean I'm near the exit that I seek

(Chorus)
Seeing light at the end of the tunnel
I'm so happy I'm going insane
There's light at the end of the tunnel
I just hope it's not an oncoming train
I just hope it's not an oncoming train
