Lyrics
A forgotten man
By the side of the road
Don't you know he's
Gotta heavy load
He needs some love

There's a pretty girl
With a crooked grin
She hates herself, Lord
Cause she can't fit in
She needs some love

There's a baby boy
Cryin' upstairs
His mom's a junky
And his daddy's not there
He needs some love

Needs Some Love
Great picking' and I really like your vocals ... and I couldn't tell if that was a harmonica or a squeezebox but I like it. Good words.
Cheers

Thanks much
Excellent call. I am using a melodica--halfway between a harmonica and a squeezebox. This is actually a rather pathetic use of the melodica, but I am not much for keyboard instruments, so this is about the best I can do. At any rate, for better or worse, it is my own breath and my own fingers on the keys :-)

Bittersweet tales
Nicely done and a true song of real life. More bitter than sweet as we don't know if they ever find love. I guess we can just hope for the best.

Nice use of the panned acoustics and some top quality vocals, Tom. Good song! Plaintive and poignant. The simple arrangement works a treat. Glad I stopped by. Regards, Peter.

Thanks for stopping by. I tried something different with the guitars. Instead of panning, I used the Haas effect. All you do is duplicate your track, pan one track hard right and one track hard left, and then put a slight delay on one of them. The slight delay creates an illusion that the sound source is to one side, because one ear is hearing it first, so to speak. I read about it, so I thought I would experiment.

Sad but true...
Your lyrics speak to so many realities in our society. I think you can expand this lyric with a bona fide chorus/refrain and maybe a couple more verses. Seems you could make a stronger impact that way. ... I like the country style of the guitar picking, the simple arrangement, and especially your vocal. All come through with urgency and an authentic sound that is very engaging and pleasant to hear. I hope you will try to do a little more with the composition of this song to give it a little more scope. Nailing a chorus would be terrific. Nice one.

Paul, I appreciate your comments very. No doubt, you are spot on in your critique, but that's all I had to say at that point in time :-)

Man you are sooooo good!
You really sing extremely well and I was taken with the bare bones kind of immediacy in your delivery, which brings out those lyrics excellently. The melodica is a really great touch and I'm glad Stan asked you about that because I was not sure myself--I think that's what makes it use very memorable here. I agree with Paul that this could carry a little more length and lyric content--I'd like to know more about this forgotten man! Excellent work, I'm really happy you've joined us here. Thanks Tom!

Tough subject matter
Especially when there are so many out there in this kind of climate. Bad times for those so I try to reflect on that every time things get a little rough my way. Love the mix, the acoustic sounds great, nice harp and the vocal/harmony is spot on. Thanks for sharing.

Not pro?
You sound so good on this and the song is so cool I just have to believe that you were a pro at some time. Harmonica is perfectly understate, guitar is good but it is your vocal that really demands respect.
