I think the lyrics have potential value. I've been laying the groundwork to write, edit and record music for it to match that value. Expect to have some time to dig more deeply into that before too much longer.

Ambivalent about your sending it in to a songwriting contest. If a top professional music writer works on it, you could get something good in a short time. But if someone who knows you and the background to this song works on it, you could get something unique, more personalized, and perhaps of even greater value, even though it takes longer.

I'm gone to Wisconsin to spend a couple weeks with relatives and friends. I'll be back, and other than some estate work, should have some time to pursue further/finish about 3 of these projects I've started. Your requested chord progression seems within reach.

Final chord progressions that I've finally worked thru. This has been alot of fun and I like the end result. Thanks again! DOC

ELLIE’S SONG (Two Smiles in Heaven)

VERSE 1
You [G] touched a hand so [Em] small tonight; saw [Am] sadness on a [D7] face.
You [G] knew the thing that [Em] made her cry; you [C] once were in her [D] place.
Your [G] eyes made her A [Em] promise that you’d [Am]always be a [D7] friend,
The [G] hunger that you [Em] know so well is [C] finally gonna [D] end.

VERSE 2
You [G] touched a hand so [Em] cold today; saw [Am] eyes that feared the [D7] night.
You [G] sang a song of [Em] self esteem; her [C]darkness turned to [D] light.
Before [G] your chorus [Em] ended, it was [Am] clear she finally [D7] knew,
She'd [G] never walk a[Em]lone again, or [C] cry those tears of [D] blue.

CHORUS
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven, Ohh, your [Dsus4] flame's a burnin' bright.
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven, so [Dsus4] small with so much fight.
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven when you [Dsus4] sing the words you write.
Oh [G] two smiles in [Csus2]heaven when you [Dsus4] sing with all your [D]might!
Can you [G] feel their love tonight? Oh oh oh, [Dsus4] feel the love tonight!

VERSE 3
You [G] touched a thousand hearts to[Em]night; you [Am] touched them one by [D7] one.
[G] Songs that reached so [Em] deep inside and [C] warmed us like the [D]sun.
To[G]night is just one [Em] lyric in the [Am] ballad of your [D7]time.
A [G] never-endin' [Em] song of love and a [C] reason for your [D]rhyme.

CHORUS
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven, Ohh, your [Dsus4] flame's a burnin' bright.
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven, so [Dsus4] small with so much fight.
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven when you [Dsus4] sing the words you write.
Oh [G] two smiles in [Csus2] heaven when you [Dsus4] sing with all your [D]might!
Can you [G] feel their love tonight? Oh oh oh, [Dsus4] feel the love tonight!


BRIDGE
[Am7]Every mother dreams her child will [Em] be a shinin’ star,
And [Am7]every daddy sees his child as [Em] everythin' you are.
[G]Two stars, so [Em] bright tonight, girl they're [Am] smilin' down on [C] you,
For [G]all the love you [Em] give away and [Am] all the good you [D7] do.

CHORUS
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven, Ohh, your [Dsus4] flame's a burnin' bright.
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven, so [Dsus4] small with so much fight.
[G]Two smiles in [Csus2] heaven when you [Dsus4] sing the words you write.
Oh [G] two smiles in [Csus2]heaven when you [Dsus4] sing with all your [D]might!
Oh your [G] flame's a burnin' bright! So [Em] small with so much fight!
Oh [Am] sing the songs you write, Oh oh oh, and [D7] sing with all your might!
'Cause there's [G] two smiles in [Dsus4] heaven to[G]night!

Made some lyrical changes to "Ellie's song" that I think make it a little better if your interested. I just edited the above post. Every time I go to one of her performances I come home and start pecking at this song to try to improve it as a tribute to the excellence she shows at her concerts. Her level of fan interaction really touches me. I hope she never is made to change by stupid fan pranks. DOC

Hi Doc Bill,

I saw your lyrics to this song at the STC, when I was sorting concert photos from fans, and arranging a wall display at the center several days ago. (Described in posts # 7 and 15 on the thread page at this link: http://www.shania-twain.org/mb/show...5&pagenumber=10 )

The meaning and the rhythm really grab me. Someday someone may write a melody for it with as much inspiration as yours.

I now have a fine new digital portable keyboard with 618 instruments built in, that I can interface with my computer. And a couple months ago, I started dabbling with music. But people and promises pulled me away again quickly, and it looks like it will be late June or July before I can get back to it. I look forward to trying out your chords, and building on that.

Meanwhile, there are some file systems at the STC for fan concert photos. And for now, the occasional song lyrics are being handled in a similar way. As you know, the STC has more material than they can display at any one time. But they do have lots of creative options for the future.

Bob
