I wrote "True North" having developed a chord and melody structure for it, then came up with the lyrics. As the lyrics came together, a story evolved about a boating accident off the coast of Mexico, where the man's true love passes away and he roams the country to find his "True North"....

Lyrics

“True North”
by: Rick Landers © July 13, 2019

C
I’ve been to Mexico
G Am
I’ve felt the True North of pain
C G
Now she’s somewhere up in Maine
C
A world of shifting sands and
G Am
Living beyond our dreams
C G Am
They say she still waits for me
F. C
I never realized that Love would

Make her call
G. Am
Then leave me on my own
F. C
I never thought that I’d crawl
G
A victim of her silly games
Am
And be the next to fall
C G Am
Tears running down my face again
G C Am
Tears running down my face
G C Am
Tears running down my face again
C G. Am
These tears running down my face
C
Once lived in Kankakee
G. Am
This man once rode those rails of steel
C G .
Now, there’s no more heart to heal
C G
I lived my life with one true love
Am
A ship of broken sails
C. G Am
We crashed into the rocks while sirens wailed

(Instrumental Break) F – C – G -Am

F. C G
Tears running down my face again
F. C G
These tears running down my face
F C G
Tears running down my face again
F-C G
These tears again
F-C. G
These tears again
C.
I’m on the open road
G. Am
Seems there’s no Northern Star for me
C G
Guess I’ll see where my life leads
C G
I’ll hitch a ride and flip a coin
Am
Sing a song about hurt and me
C. G Am
A dream forever lost at sea
F C
I never realized that Love would

Make her call
G. Am
Then leave me on my own

F C
I never thought that I’d crawl
G
A victim of her silly games
Am
And be the next to fall

C G Am
Tears running down my face again
G C Am
Tears running down my face
G C Am
Tears running down my face again
C G. Am
These tears running down my face

F C G
Tears running down my face again
F C G
These tears running down my face
F C G
Tears running down my face again
F-C G
These tears again
F-C G
These tears again
F-C. G
My tears
