From the album FAWM 2019

Here is my second song for the Hank Williams in Hell challenge. I am finding that this unique way of writing a song is bringing out some interesting melodies. I guess you are forced to go in a different direction with every line.

And knock me down with a feather I have cheated...again.. I used CDGD twice. Oh well..

The chords for this one are:

Lyrics

When I was young on my way
All my commitments so far away
Running, singing, catching rays
Those where my Halcyon days

Oh those halcyon days
Those where my Halcyon days

Later I grew up on time's highway
Sailing out on Algoa bay
Dancing, surfing, catching waves
Those where my Halcyon days

Now that I'm older on life's narrow way
My younger years seem so far away
cooking working to keep up to date
Spending my to time to bring home the pay

Looking back on Halcyon days
Maybe its part of the plan
Living learning every day
takes me to where I am

These are my Halcyon days
Oh these Halcyon days
