Rosalita, You Don’t Have a Country

After my OTT 23 chord effort last month, I’ve gone the other way this time. I’ve tried to write in the country genre, so the challenge for me has been to restrict myself to the proverbial three chords, in this case G, C and D, although I couldn’t resist the temptation to add an Em at the end of the chorus. It’s the story of a young woman who escapes the fear of gang violence in Honduras, makes her way into the US, and is then in fear of being caught and deported back. Another challenge – to fit that story into a short song!
