Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: Feed Me (Charles Stephen Sedberry)

The following song was published in an earlier form in Broadside (magazine, NYC) in the 1980's. Since the following lyrics are superior, at least in my opinion, I'd like to add them to Mudcat, just for the record.

        FEED ME
        words and music by Charles Stephen Sedberry

E                F#m
Down on my luck, stuck in your town,
B7                      E      E+4
each town acts the same way---.
    E             F#m
They hustle me out by the fast route
B7                E         A B7
just like a mangy stray---.
       E          A
Chorus: Feed-- me. Feed-- me.
       B7                   E
       All that I ask is you feed-- me.
       E                     F#m
       Forget my dirt and my raggedy shirt.
       B7                   E         E+4 E A B7   
       All that I ask is you feed-- me.
E                         F#m
I can't eat your Bi--ble; I can't eat the smile
    B7                   E      A B7
you give me as you walk a-way---.
E                            F#m
Food gives me strength while hunger wears down
   B7             E       A B7
my chances day by day---.      (to chorus)

I'm a child on your street; I'm a man in your town.
I'm a woman from far away---.
And it's so hard to cope when I lose all my hope
and nobody knows what to say. (to chorus)

Nobody's pure; we know that for sure
so, why ask it of me---?
We all make mistakes so give me a break,
shake some fruit down from your tree. (to chorus)

Nice song, Steve. Any chance you could get the tune to me for posting? You could e-mail a MIDI or scan, or snailmail it to me.
I'll bet it was a thrill to see it published in Broadside.
Thanks.

Hi, Steve - yes, I can read Finale and most other music formats. MMario was silent on the issue [grin], but he can read most formats, too. Send it on.

At the end of the song I've added "I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst." from John 6:35. The tune is different but complementary. It hasn't been recorded that way yet.
