I Wrote a Song
2022©JohnSchofield

Verse 1
I was hanging out in Marathon
Living in a tin can
Trying to write a hit song
About a lost and lonely man

Verse 2
By the time I got it finished
And sang it to the sea
I could see what I’d written
Was a song ‘bout a guy like me

Chorus:
I wrote a song about the passing years, a melody of hopes and fears
But I recall the good things too, and of those things the best was you
Yeh, the best of those was you

Verse 3
I’m headed back to Nashville
Gonna sell this little song
And then I’m gonna find you
And get back where I belong

Chorus:
I wrote a song about the passing years, a melody of hopes and fears
But I recall the good things too, and of those things the best was you
Yeh, the best of those was you
