Musical Direction

Musical Direction

written by: Mike Turner



I sought the peace
Of heart, mind and soul
And in silence I found jazz

Heard hope and heartache
In the moaning blues
Promised sorrow would pass

Country’s sole three chords
Laid out clear, pure truth
Gave me faith that good would win

So the music played
And gave me the strength
To dance on, and sing again
