Mellow Man

May 8, 2015

Here’s another of my songs from the late 1970s, along with the back scene as it appeared in my book, Three A.m – The Complete 1970s Song Lyrics.

This song has always been a favorite of mine as it was written at a time when I finally found that my struggles as a song writer had finally produced some success.

V1 Well, you go away,
And you get it right….
You wake up one day,
You are a mellow man….

V2 Your empty glass
Has been filled again….
And you let it pour,
You are a mellow man….

Ch Mellow man, are you really listening?
Mellow man, do you really care?
Mellow man, are you finally loving?
Mellow man, with your feet up in the air.

V3 Your heart is light,
And your head’s away….
You take to bed at night
A very mellow man….

Ch Mellow man, are you really listening?
Mellow man, do you really care?
Mellow man, are you finally loving?
Mellow man, with your feet up in the air.

Back Scene 2011:

This is one of my favorite happy songs. It is not overcrowded with lyrics and lets the chord progressions do the talking. I played this a lot at clubs, parties, etc. It was also a good commercial success, being recorded by me and two female recording artists.
