Baby Blue

This is a solid effort, though there are some rough spots with the vocal. I decided to keep it as is. The chorus shifts into a higher key, one that is out of my range. I could have switched to falsetto, but the volume would have diminished.  One can have an imperfect vocal with sufficient loudness, or a smoother one which is so soft that the guitar drowns it out.

That's the thing with live recordings. Otherwise, this song reminds me of a former lover.

Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long, my love
All that time without a word
Didn't know you'd think that I'd forget
or I'd regret

The special love I had for you, my baby blue

All the days became so long
Did you really think, I'd do you wrong?
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you'd realize that I would know
I would show the special love I have for you, my baby blue

What can I do, what can I say
Except I want you by my side
How can I show you, show me the way
Don't you know the times I've tried?

Guess that's all I have to say
Except the feeling just grows stronger every day
Just one thing before I go

Take good care, baby, let me know, let it grow
The special love you have for me, my Dixie, dear.
