#27 - Call Her Wild 

Since I call this a creative journal, here's another rough draft song sketch.  I teach songwriting via Rivertunes At Home this weekend, so I'm trying to get my circulation moving for those quick, 5 minute song starts. You know, just play and sing whatever comes out your mouth.  Here's something I'm naming "Call Her Wild."

The chorus came out in a 5 minute song start, then I quickly added a couple verses without too much thinking.  In addition to being an excellent way to push out material, "without too much thinking" sometimes leads me to repeat old patterns. So, I might go back and change the verse melody when I re-work this song. 

Make sure you press play on the mp3 at the bottom of the page, if you'd like to hear it. They're always at the bottom, it's how the template is set up.

Call Her Wild

I saw her walking
I saw her walking on the side of the road

She was gazing
She was gazing toward the sun hanging low

Call her wild
Call her anything
Call her wounded
Call her weak

She calls the mountains
She calls the north winds
What I call her is free

I saw wolves
I saw wolves circle round her one day

She lay down
She lay down and the wolves went away

Call her wild
Call her anything 
Call her wounded 
Call her weak

She calls the mountains
She calls the north winds
What I call her is free

  • This is beautiful. It makes me want to write or go outside and walk around in the dark. Thank you for the classes! That format works. It was great to hear what people are writing. I feel somewhat isolated with no workshops or jams. I need to remember to come to The Oar regularly!

    I'm so glad you like it, and yes I get that feeling at times, too! Thank you for coming to the classes, I too was pleased with how the format worked -- wasn't sure how it would go.
