In a San Diego songwriters' contest, Jim Wright provides the melody and vocal to song lyrics by AD poet Richard Lee Orey

Radio station KPRI FM in San Diego has proposed the song title "In the Dirt" 
                            to the San Diego Songwriters Meetup, the job of its members to write the lyrics 
                            and melody to match.  Of an expected 40 entrants, the winner's performance  
                            will be re-recorded in a professional sound studio and later broadcast in the 
                            station's Sunday evening "Homegrown Hour." 
                            I wrote the lyrics for the bawdy ballad "In the Dirt" in mid-March, 2012.  Now 
                            in mid-May, 2012, I've just received a "first draft" soundtrack of instrumentation 
                            and vocal by Jim Wright of San Diego County, who's the same singer who 
                            provided the vocal and melody for my other AD post (Poetry) song lyrics 
                            "Every Second." 


                                                  In the Dirt
                                                  Vocal:  Jim Wright  
                                                  Lyrics:  Richard Lee Orey

                                                 Was a cold 'n rainy night
                                                  I stopped to belt a few
                                                  Wettin' my whistle just a tad
                                                  Enjoyin' a barstool view

                                                  Three seats down the bar
                                                  My eyes had to stop and rest
                                                  Though the ladies all looked fine
                                                  She was certainly the best

                                                  Her lovely eyes looked over
                                                  As she offered up a smile
                                                  She winked at me 'n strolled my way
                                                  Showing class and lots of style

                                                  It was four drinks after sunset
                                                  When we shared our first delight
                                                  With the motel lights ablinkin'
                                                  In the dark and stormy night

                                                  O, I got this to say
                                                  About dealing with a flirt
                                                  Your virtue's living outta town
                                                   And rollin' rollin' in the dirt

                                                  M'lady offered up a private pill
                                                  She had hidden outta sight
                                                   I gulped it down without a question
                                                   And we shared one more delight

                                                  Then she kissed me long 'n nuzzled close
                                                   Suggesting we have more
                                                    M'dazzled eyes asked the question
                                                    She answered, "How 'bout four?"

                                                   Well, I got this to say
                                                    About dealing with a flirt
                                                    Your virtue's living outta town
                                                   And rollin'  rollin'in the dirt

                                                   Some time after noon it was 
                                                   When the sheriff first appeared
                                                   He shook his head 'n spoke his words
                                                    "It's just as I had feared."

                                                   I copped a little look around
                                                   "Where's my little skirt?"
                                                   The lawman choked 'n shared his wit
                                                    "Tell us about your hurt"

                                                    It was quite a night, I have t'say
                                                    Money's gone 'n virtue, too
                                                    But I'll swear this 
                                                    Under oath, my friend
                                                     It was great for quite a few!

                                                     O, I got this to say
                                                     About dealing with a flirt
                                                     Your virtue's living outta town
                                                     And rollin' in the dirt
                                                     O, I got this to say
                                                     About dealing with a flirt
                                                     Virtue's living outta town
                                                     And rollin' rollin' in the dirt
                                                     O, living outta town
                                                     Yes, and rollin' in the dirt

                                                        Richard Lee Orey and Jim Wright

It's got a nice storyline and I really love the hook.

This is so awesome!! I love it and think it's a winner. I love country/soul music and this is just one of the best I've heard in a while. You are an amazing man and poet.

Good luck with this-to you both!!

Richard, I love your epic-type song. The music sounds like a combination of country and blues. You do "got" talent, Richard, and it must be thrill to have your songs put to music.
