Creative Brief

I write the lyrics. You see what musical life you can bring to the lyrics. Here are the copyrighted lyrics: OPEN WITH CHORUS: Oh, don't forget your grandma now at Christmas / Living there alone with all her charm. / Taking care of what her husband left her / When he died while working on the farm. V1. When my grand-ma fell in love with Charlie / She was nine and he was nearly ten. / At sixteen they were married on a shoestring / When Charlie said, "We'll make it, yes we can." V2. Well they bought a patch of ground out by the railroad. / It wasn't much to see but it was theirs. / Rugged Charlie plowed the fields and planted cotton / While grandma cooked the meals and said the prayers. REPEAT CHORUS HERE   V3. Very soon in life they had three little children. / One was a girl; the other two were boys. / With needs in life and not much extra money / The children rarely got new store-bought toys. V4. John grew up and went away to Harvard. / Billy went to work in Tennessee. / Little Susie found a husband in Chicago / And all were busy with their families. REPEAT CHORUS HERE V5. A bull gored Charlie; then he got pneumonia. / Sick though he was, he waged a mighty fight. / But in their humble house beside the railroad / Charlie died in Grandma's arms one winter night. V6. Billie, John and Susie's childhood preacher / Spoke kind words about their daddy's life. / Then after food and hugs and goodbye kisses / They headed for their distant homes that night. V7. Grandma hoped her children would stay longer. / She wished the grandkids could have come along. / But work and sports seem now to be life's master / And we need to be reminded by this song. FINAL CHORUS HERE.   Formal copyright 2020 by Ken Johnson, Nashville. 417-425-3670  I do have a melody that I can provide to you as a thought stimulator. Also, I have copyrighted lyrics for three additional Christmas songs, available to you to work with.
