Song Description

A scene from the life of two songwriters in the process of writing a new song

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by my dear friends Ed and Jenni, both songwriters. I sang this at their wedding reception.

Lyrics

MOCKINGBIRD WALTZ

All I need is the first line. The second will come.
If I don't know the right word, I can always hum.
Oh your fiddle will guide me, chide me should I go astray.
No time for the dishes in the kitchen sink.
No time for the paper. No time to think
about all of those things we said we would get to today.

Just sing me that melody you wrote today,
that ragged old tune that you barely can play.
I'll sing words in your ear as you play the Mockingbird Waltz.

That lonesome pecan tree pines like a sap.
Fall is upon us. A long winter nap
is coming when the mockingbird flies like a leaf from the tree.
We don't go dancing in the clubs anymore
but there's plenty of room on this old kitchen floor.
I will offer my hand. Oh my darling, will you waltz with me?

Just hum me that melody you wrote today.
That ragged old tune that you barely can play.
I'll sing words in your ear as we sway to the Mockinbird Waltz.

Sing with me darling the song of today,
that ragged old tune that we barely can play,
but we'll sing anyway and sway to the Mockingbird Waltz.
