Doing the Best I Can Margie & Art Corey/BMI Copyright 2019 (C) Song Guard June 24, 2019

1st Verse
Life is hard and money don't come easy
Just doing the best I can
Been on the road, oh, so long
Doin' odd jobs to get us by....

2nd Verse
But coming home to you, is all I ever needed
Walking thru this Farm House door
Never wanted any thing else
Oh, never wanted any thing more.........

Chorus
Now, the kids they need new shoes
And the tractor's running mean
Things may not always be as bad
As they often seen.....

With you here by my side
We can do most anything
Yes, we can fight The Good Fight
What any storm will bring.....

3rd Vesre
This Farm's been in my family
My dad left it to me
Till the soil and work the land
We'll get by you wait and see......

Chorus
Repeat 1st Verse........& 2nd Verse
We'll get by you wait and see........

love the voice.... I want to work with you.......

Really like the gentleness of this country song. Great use of string instrumentation to fill in the music nicely. Well done

You had me with the title. I loved the vocals. Great story telling. Did you like specific instrumental parts--vocals and violin 1) Does my intro make you want to hear the song? yes 2) Does my opening line draw you in and make you want to hear more? yes 3) Is my melody interesting? yes 4) Does my melody get stuck in your head? yes 5) Does my chorus stand out and take the song to a higher place? somewhat

Good production. Melody really appealing. Story song with heart. I'm hearing what you are saying...but think you can say it better...this song is worth me challenging you to some lyric changes :)
