Creative Brief

Hello all,

I would like to keep to the Country-Rock or Alt Country genre with this latest lyric.

This also feels to me to be in the great Jason Isbell or Steve Earl style.

Looking for some cool Slide or Steel Guitar or Dobro for this. Maybe some Banjo in the trimmings.

Thanks very much,



Rise Above

by B K Williamson 5/29/2015

I came home today

an' I'll have to say

I wasn't surprised

Alone here again

with my only friend

Johnny Walker and I

The lump in my throat

when I saw her note

It won't last for long

I'll wash it away

by the end of the day

be damned right or wrong


So this is the way that it feels

Your bridges on fire

Like comin' up short on a deal

with someone you admire

An' there ain't nothin' killin' that pain

for money or love

On your own now

you learn that somehow

you might rise above

God knows I try

to laugh an' not cry

keep busy my mind

A little less each day

until I can say

Good mornin' I'm fine

I'll dig up my pride

an' take it outside

so everyone sees

I'm doin' okay

you might even say

that I'm livin' free

Chorus: =======
