A new song I wrote: ‘I Feel Free’

Here is another new song that I wrote recently. It is called, ‘I Feel Free.’ ~~ Chad


I Feel Free
by Chad Shank

I fill up with gas at a 2 pump station
On the outskirts of civilization
Out here where I can roam
The rat race I run away from
So I can breathe in freedom
The prairie feels like home

PC:
City’s where I make ends meet
back there I’m Mr Corporate
Stuffed into an office
Out here I’m king not a worker bee

CHORUS:
Country air
Windows down
I Feel Free
Getting out
On the road
I Feel Free
As the sun’s sinking down over the corn fields
I Feel Free

V2:
The way time is flying it won’t be that long
I can quit my job and say so long
Can’t wait til I’m retired
Get back to rural America
No concrete hysteria
The place where I’m revived

PC:
Watch the sunset and stars come out
Sinking slow on the horizon
Man it’s really something
It’s those simple things that what life’s about

CHORUS

Bridge:
Hello Farmland
It is always good to see you
But let’s not wait so long for next time

CHORUS

  1. Hey – I’m a Minnesota songwriter by passion, a trial lawyer by day. My brother and I office in Hopkins at 394 and 169, so it looks like we’re practically neighbors. I’ve been writing songs for two decades – country/pop/folk. I am now submitting my songs to TAXI and Music Xray after getting them produced professionally in Nashville. I’ve had some success in the past – sent one country rock tune to European radio in 1999 and it shot up the radio charts to #1 on the Independent Top 40 charts in June of that year – even got past some Shania Twain hits. Since then I’ve been working on my craft, getting my songs more “commercial sounding” – enjoying the process, but doing it alone. I only found your website this morning – apparently just as you were finishing your lyric writing workshop, which I would have loved to take. I’d like to explore learning from you and working with you as a co-writer for melody and structure on my songs. I can email you some samples of what I’ve done and what I’d like to improve. Where should I send them? Thanks.

    • Hey. Sorry you missed the workshop this time around. I will be planning more. I also teach songwriting for community education programs as well. Watch my site for those. Just wrapping up one in Hastings tomorrow. I also provide 1 on 1 coaching and lessons. I am not really looking for cowriters, but ya never know. You can email me through the contact tab of this site. Also there is a meeting of the MN Association of Songwriters this Wednesday at McNally Smith in St Paul. You should attend a meeting. Great critique opportunity. I can critique what you send me.
