Be My NancyMay 21, 2008 at 9:47 pm | Posted in song ideas, songs with words | 2 Comments
here’s a song that’s a bit of a tribute to Norman and Nancy Blake, a legendary husband and wife guitar/mandolin duo. it’s also a little about marriage and how much I love making music and living life together. this is just a draft that could use a lot of editing and perhaps some consolidation and additions.
Be My Nancy
I’ll be your Norman, if you’ll be my Nancy
I’ll pick out a simple tune, nothing all too fancy
If I try the melody
Will you sing sweet harmony?
If I’ll be your Norman, will you be my Nancy?
Will you play a steady beat?
Sweet runs voiced in a different key.
Pick out notes that intertwine
Two hearts, one song: that’s oh-so-fine
We can sing some happy songs
About our little home where we belong
Or maybe a tune about long ago
When things were simple and life was slow
I might never pick too good
But honey I hope it’s understood
That if you’re playing by my side
Sweet music rings out far and wide
