About This Song


The guitarist is trekking across the USA looking for musical inspiration. He finds a bar with a great band on stage, the songs are good, the female singer is great and the whisky is mighty fine! Now, he wants to get up on stage and play.......

Feedback Requested


Always happy to get constructive advice!

Hey, Ross! Thanks for sharing. I like the throwback vibe of the song. Also like that it’s a tempo “live” song.

In the chorus you repeat the thought about “nothing wrong” a few times. With that much attention on that thought, I think you’d be wise to either change those lines in the chorus or use the verses to set them up.

For example, the verse could talk about how some people think it’s wrong or they’re worried about him being at this bar so often, but he doesn’t see anything wrong with whisky, women and song.  Second verse could be about how there’s a lot of “wrong” in the world, but it’s all good in that bar.

Plus, changes along those lines could make your song more univrsal than the pretty specific setup you have going on here.

Hope that helps! If it does, you can pay it forward by leaving a review on someone else’s song. Thanks!

Whisky Women & Song (2017 reworking)

Written by Ross Hemsworth

Whiskey Women & Song © R Hemsworth


I DROVE A HUNDRED MILES , NEEDED A REST
FOUND A LITTLE COUNTRY TOWN
THE WHISKEY WAS GOOD AND THE WOMEN WERE FINE
COUNTRY BAND PLAYING THE SOUND

THE JOINT WAS JUMPING AND THE MUSIC WAS LOUD
AND THAT'S HOW I LIKE IT BEST
THINK I MIGHT STAY FOR A NIGHT OR TWO
'CAUSE I KNOW I'M WANTING SOME REST

Chorus

WHISKEY WOMEN AND SONG
WELL I DON'T SEE TOO MUCH WRONG
WITH WHISKEY WOMEN AND SONG
NOTHING WRONG...... NO, NOTHING WRONG


SO I GOT ME A TABLE RIGHT BY THE STAGE
TO LISTEN TO THAT BAND
LITTLE LADY BELTING OUT THEM TUNES
I FELT LIKE HER GREATEST FAN

THE BOYS BEHIND HER WELL THEY COULD PLAY
PICKING IT WITH THE BEST
I WANTED TO JOIN THEM WITH MY GUITAR
AND PUT MY OWN PLAYING TO THE TEST

Repeat Chorus
Middle 8 (Solo)

Repeat Chorus
Repeat verses 3 and 4
Repeat Chorus
