Words & Music by Roger Bolt

It's a silver dollar moon and your not here
I'm empty and alone with a 10 mile stare
And the night bird sings a solitary song,
The night's so long

That hollow place inside is colored deep blue
Without you I'm alone, no matter what I do
So baby please, baby won't you please come home


Memories still linger, angry words so unkind
I must have been clearly right out of my mind
But now your gone, alone I still remain
I pray to dear God I can hold you again

Lead break x2


Verse 2
In some other life your love was my own
Losing you cuts so deeply, right down to the bone.
And I'm all messed up just think'n bout you...
What am I gonna do.

Well the night bird's gone and the sun is on the rise
Cherish your love and take a word from the wise
So baby please, baby won't you please come home
I'm all alone

Loved it all, great feel! Very nice. I wanted to record full band behind it too, that would be fun!

Rich sounding vocals. Simple instrumentation. Nicely done!

Solid Blues Song! Very enjoyable! Guitar work makes this tune. Production and Balance of this piece is well done.
