For the best effect, please be sure to enjoy watching, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, my homemade amateur video recording of ME (!), performing, by ear, my original composition of, "WHO WAS THAT GIRL?", as I accompany myself by strumming simple chords on my Yamaha G-130A classical guitar.

VERSE # 01:
Who was the girl
That I dreamed of last night?
Her sparkling eyes
Filled my soul with delight!
We strolled hand in hand,
Exchanging love's kiss.
My poor lonely heart
Knew a moment of bliss. 

Who was that girl?
Oh, what was her name?
She smiled at me;
Set my heart all aflame.
Who was that girl?
Oh, where can she be?
Is it only in dreams,
That my love, I can see? 

VERSE # 02:
Lonely am I,
While I'm still awake.
Maybe I'll see her
When slumber, I take.
When she looks at me
And she giggles with joy,
I'm no longer such
A poor sad lonely boy. 

VERSE # 03:
It's three in the morning,
And I'm not asleep.
So, I wrote this song
Of the vision I keep.
An angel from Heaven
Came down from above.
But only when dreaming,
Can I know her love.

That was excellent John, your best, I believe. Reminds me of a Southern soldier boy singing to his girl while encamped before the next day's battle of killing Yankees.:)
