Homemade Song

(Words and Music: Doc Schneider -- Sung by Jon Almett)
HOMEMADE SONG


Never been a Rhymin' Simon
never been the same as James
never seemed to find my timing
never seemed to change my range
but oh what it feels like
to sing a Homemade Song
something I can sing and you can sing along

And sure, I let a hundred chances pass me by
with a thousand excuses
'bout a million reasons why
I never made the mountain
but I'm up here on this hill
which is quite alright with me
'cause this hill is still a thrill

Never been a Rhymin' Simon
never been the same as James
the troubles always been my timing
never heard the next chord change
but oh, what it feels like
to sing a Homemade Song
something I can play and you can sing along

And sure, I passed my time and prime
for writing songs
but then something still moves me
and floats my soul along
And suddenly I'm singing
and I'm back up on this hill
and once more like before
this hill is still a thrill

Never been a Rhymin' Simon
never been the same as James
never seemed to find my timing
never seemed to change my range
but oh, what it feels like
to sing a Homemade Song
something I can sing and you can sing along

Take it in your heart
(and) put it in your pie hole
find your favorite part
and that'll always take you home
Sing
Sing this homemade thing
and sing along
Sing
Sing this homemade song

And if it's only me and you
and we're up here on this hill
will I sing a song for two?
you know I will

Never been a Rhymin' Simon
never been the same as James
never seemed to find my timing
never seemed to change my range
but oh what it feels like
to sing a Homemade Song
something I can play and you can sing along.
