Week 4 – Edgy Country and 4 New Songs

Our challenge this week was from Ron Irving.

“Male artist, early 20s. No mention of marriage or kids. No references to “partying at the lake”, “trucks and tailgates” and no “bro country” vibe.”

I participated in the birth of four songs. In just one week! A record for me.

I co-wrote with Mikalyn and Michael Hay on two songs.

Kathryn Jean Alexander. Two songs popped out of her worksheet(s).

We all kind of gravitated towards different corners, with wonderful kibitzing from each other.

Here’s the song I gravitated towards… Gray, Green and Blue… A 4-way co-write.

Gray, Green and Blue
(Kathryn Jean Alexander, Paul Tarvydas, Michael Hay, Mikalyn Hay)

Stiletto towers
Grind winos
Under the heels
Sirens of financne
Three-piece steeel

Grary, green and blue
Gray, green and blue

You had a simple life
Gentle town
You wanted more
You left the dirt
For the eye of the storm

Gray, green and blue
Gray, green and blue

Does green paper smell better than grass?
Are exhausted skies better than blue?

Gray, greeen and blue
Gray, green and blue

Go, go home
Put your feet in stirrups
And blue jeans
Go, go home
There’s country in your veins

Gray, green and blue
Gray, green and blue
Gray, green and blue.

The other three are…
