Try Again The Best You Can

The lyrics to this song are from a postcard dated 1965-1966, where John Lennon wrote lyrics to a song that he never recorded. I read about it a couple of years ago and wrote music to go with the lyrics. This is how it turned out.

And since it's John's birthday and all, I thought I'd share.

If someone told me this was a Lennon melody as well, I would totally believe it. Very nice.

I though this was fab - could we have a longer version please?

Thanks guys!!

I've thought about a longer version, but I thought it was sacrilege enough adding music to Lennon's words, I didn't wanna go adding more words. I guess I could just repeat. But I'll probably just leave you wanting more and work on other things. :)

Appreciate the feedback, though. Glad you like it.
