Artist's Notes

New instruments always seem to generate new song ideas for me.

My wife bought a Udu (percussion instrument) at a music festival and I came up with this tune on my Ukulele.


The Long Way Down

By Brent Godfrey 2017

Verse 1Be careful what you wish forThe future no one knows Cm

Be careful what you wish forEasy come and easy go

ChorusOn the Long way downThere is a road that you must travel

On the Long way downThere is a place you have to go

Verse 2The truth is always goldenThe truth will set you free

The truth is always goldenWritten in the leaves of tea


Verse 3The road leads on foreverThe road has no return

The road leads on foreverPlay with fire and you?ll get burned

Verse 4The past may be tomorrowThe future yesterday

The past may be tomorrowNo one knows why anyway
