Story behind the song
After having read this insightful poem on Electric Shadow's site, here at Soundclick, Jerry Willard of Electric Shadow graciously consented to allow my attempt to set "True Fortune" to music.....but, it seems the words themselves made the music!!!! The search for unconditional love involves searching one's self as well as those in your life and then even into the most abstract concepts of life, weighing one's self in the balance...
Lyrics
True Fortune Jerry Willard Capo 1st fret D A Em You know true fortune doesn't come easy D A Em And sometimes it doesn't come at all D A Em But the little voice inside my head says DA Em If you want it go ahead and take the fall Refrain #1 F G Dsus4D Go ahead and trace the mystery F G Dsus4D Check the footprints in the hall F G Dsus4D The dawn is slowly breaking G F D and time won't wait at all D A Em Now you've got yourself in deeper D A Em In a maze, you twist and turn D A Em Don't leave any stone uncovered DA Em For this fortune, you must earn Break B7AB7A DAEm DAEm FGDsus4D FGDsus4D GFD Refrain #2 B7 A How do you check the balance with your eyes closed? B7 AAm Is there really true justice for all? F G Dsus4D Go ahead and trace the mystery G FD Check the footprints in the hall D A Em At the start you were so clever D A Em Stalking at every move D A Em You were sure, you had the answers DA Em But the answers came too soon Refrain #1 D AEm In your time of desperation DA Em Your life flashes before your eyes D A Em You see all the truth before you DA Em And again, you hear all the lies Refrain #3 B7A Did you count on things that were pointless? B7 AA7 And gamble on things that were sure? D AEm Have they promised the road isn't rocky? D AEm And the future to be secure? Refrain #4 F G Dsus4D Go ahead and trace the mystery F G Dsus4D Check the footprints in the hall FG Dsus4D True fortune is called love GF D And this is free to all........
