Late Night Munchies # II... [Random Challege #16]

Hand full of peanuts
ear for the blues
bottle of aged whiskey
a heart full of you

Piano keys tinkling
Strings are humming
I see the blues
Yes, they're coming

Woman always picking
Blame me everything
But she got a sweet voice
Maaaan, she can sing

Fingers tap the ivory
high notes, guitar strum
Picking those notes
against slow beating drums

Hear my strings wail
the song of love wrong
Sax howling midnight
Feelings so strong

Oh God, am I crazy?
I'm happy with you
where there's whiskey,the munchies
and a thing called the blues

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

I like this one better than the first! it is amazing! my favorite lines:

Hear my strings wail
the song of love wrong
Sax howling midnight
Feelings so strong

I have no suggestions...you nailed it!

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

Only critique I have is ending 2 lines with "blues". Maybe end 2nd with something like old songs?

think on it. ~ Geez.
