Writing The Song

It started as a twinkle in inspiration's eye
Then it became a wrinkle in my soul and mind
I thought...this thing's become a pain, It burning like a fire
So I got out a legal notepad and my old stolen guitar.....
And it flowed like a river....

I pitched it on sixteenth street, up and down Music Row
I didn't have to ask directions, they all told me Where To Go!!
A homeless dude out by the Ryman, said he was gifted in the rhyme
So he critiqued it for a dollar and I rewrote it one more time.....
And it flowed like a river....

Yeah it flowed like a river...angels singing all around me
You talk about delivered! this one's gonna win a Grammy!
A number one! Song of the year! I knew it was crackin' fine 
'Til my wife said she could buy one, for a dollar thirty nine!
And I drowned in the river....

    I have written some lyrics, but mostly they are four lines with some rhyme. This smacks as a great song.
