Hello Elle,

Would you be interested in some (oh, I hate talking like this) really great country lyrics? I just finished a piece that is written for a female voice and I’m dying to find just the right person to tackle it! It’s about a girl that finally throws her guy out, but not before she sells his Harley out from under him. He goes to jail and she finally sleeps like a baby. Just the right voice could kill this one!

Below, please find my bio for additional info:

My name is David Murray, and I’m a lyrical writer with a surprising number of country songs in my catalog, especially for a guy that’s never been on a horse! Below, please find my posting:

309 songs in catalog, (not all country) or I’ll write just for you! Strong rhyme schemes, tight, poignant, adventure topics. I’m a freak about lyrical rhyme cadence. (Genres: Country, Folk/Roots, Celtic, Christian, Rock) Favs: Prine, T.T. Hall, Cohen, Lennon/McCartney, Taupin. I’m a serious, responsive writer… and I hope you’ll think that I do it well. Support background: I’m a semi-retired marketing executive, served on the faculty at the RI School of Design, published 3 children’s books and played in the RI Highlanders Pipe & Drum Band. Easy to work with, rapid response and fun! Compensation is not a driving factor, split 50/50 if revenue streams. Member BMI and Songwriters Guild of America. Remember, it costs nothing to chat!

Hope to hear from you Elle,
Seekonk, MA, USA
