Where All People Should Be Free

Dabbling in the 1800's again.

"Where All People Should Be Free"

I've traipsed thru field and farmer's row
Hid myself from shots from foe
Dug myself a trench in muck
Branchs bent in which to duck

Fight for freedom of my own
A willing prisoner far from home
Caution flows from son to son
On this path that was begun

(Chorus)
We walk, we ride, we wander
Sail the shore to gain control
Ever diligent in effort
To save each moral soul
From maples to magnolias
Plains, lakes, to the sea
Fighting for a common ground
Where all people should be free

Some escape and stay alive
Flee to where they might survive
Some will fall and don't recover
On the bodies of each other

Both sides think they are right
Air burns crimson in the night
Explosions blast on the high hill
Push them back against their will

(Chorus)

Stormed from each direction
Caught in strategic imperfection
Here I lie pierced from the blade
Led by bayonet to grave

Still they walk and ride and wander
Sail the shore to gain control
Ever diligent in effort
To save each moral soul
From maples to magnolias
Plains, lakes, to the sea
I know I've been a part of those
Who know all should be free

In it's category I think it does the job, though it isn't my favorite among your styles. However. Then I started tapping a rhythm, just to get a little more feel for it. And then it came. You're gonna love this.

Don't even try telling me you don't hear, feel, it from note one.


Hey, can I have you e-mail address again? You're gonna regret it for the rest of your life.

Yup, that's pretty much the feel of the song modernized. And goodness does that ever sound Moody Blues-ish, too.

0o0o, baby! lol Sure. On it's way.

Damn it, it ain't working. But I'll have better equipment rigged up come summer, so at least I can ask:
Would it be OK with you if I took these lyrics and ran with a bit in the direction of aforementioned song? All due credit, of course. I'm working with a small group of musicians to do a show this summer and this could fit right in. I imagine a fairly straightforward arrangement; we have one each of soprano, alt, tenor and bass, as well as guitar, piano, flute and possibly violin. So, yea:
?

Sure can. I'd really like to hear at least a melody when you hit one. If it makes a million I want a cut.
