A Faint Heart

by Ande Rasmussen

A couple years ago, a local songwriter took interest in the Brobdingnagian Bards. He asked to co-write a song with us and almost immediately sent this song. Yesterday, I finally set down and wrote a melody for the song. I recorded it for my non-typical love songs CD A Tribute to Love.
a faint heart never
won a fair maiden
a faint heart never
let a lad be brazen
call up your courage
what's a few scars
you won't win the lady
you'll lose the lass
with a faint heart
put down your pint
get out of your seat
I spy a lass
you ought to meet
if you feel afraid
don't let it show
here is a rhyme
that you ought to know

get her attention
make a fool of yourself
if you don't go right now
she might find somebody else
then you'll never know,
what it was you lost
you better act right now
or suffer the cost

I know your heart's been trampled
like green grass under hooves
you spy her you want her
but you're scared to make a move
your knees are knocking
you're frozen in fear
this might be shocking
here's what you need to hear

you won't win the lady
you will lose the lass
you'll never know
unless you ask

I like the subject matter here. The meter is also nice. I can't wait to hear the tune!

Hmm. This is a very nice song. I can almost think up a tune, but I'd like to hear what you come up with. It's likely to be loads better than mine (since I'm hopeless at music).

Thanks for sharing this one.
