Last night after Larry Sparks show, I had the pleasure of having a heart to heart talk with him. We discussed songwriting. I was pleasantly surprised with his viewpoint.
I shared with him these chorus lyrics of a song I had finished last week. “Lord You know that I’m just a man, tryin to do the best that I can. Lord, You hear the words I can’t say, when my heart is troubled, and I can’t even pray.”
Larry said, “You got it! Keep it simple and to the point. That’s what made Hank Williams songs so great. Simplicity! It is all about sharing your heart in the song.”
