This week we’re excited to present our very first song that has come out of a Sunday creative writing session. Many thanks to Tamara Raidt for the lyrics and singing along with her friend Julien.
Writing inspired by the SWC creative writing prompt: Write your own legendary folk song using the audio file “Ode to Woody”
Ode to Woody
Ode to Woody
By Tamara Raidt
Do you remember
the first time we met
‘round a bottle and two cigarettes
kids dreaming of the West
How we’d dance our nights away, how I’d ask you to stay
And our dreams of waves and foam, we’d always take them home
Late in the summer
I heard a truck arrive
you moved out, why, I wonder
you forgot to say goodbye
The neighborhood’s not been the same, without you cursing their names
Woody, I’d do it all again, at 82 like at 10
Wonderful! A great experiment in expanding Sunday’s Writers creativity.
Many thanks for your comment, Connie. Collectively (you included) we’re continually pushing the creative boundaries.
terrific! I loved it, the music, the singing and those wonderful lyrics; more of this stuff, please 🙂 I’m going to play it gain !
Glad you enjoyed our first musical creative writing post. With a bit of luck, we’ll have more songs to follow.

Tamara and Julien make quite the duet. You might be up next, Stephen 😉
We are so glad you enjoyed the song! Julien and I had a lot of fun singing it 🙂
