New Song - Existential Blues/Living In The Moment - 3 String Cigar Box Guitar

https://bemuzic.bandcamp.com/

Rough demo of a new song, the first from my latest guitar. The tune came out while noodling in front of the fire one day, then the lyrics came later, probably partly influenced by the book I'm reading atm - Desolation Angels by Jack Kerouac.
Not sure what to call it?? Existential Blues? Existential Angst Blues?... or Living In The Moment?
I messed up the end, so faded it out... (Tried to do another take, but my voice started giving out. Fed up with bad throat!!)

LYRICS

When you think that the world is at your feet,
that’s when the rug is pulled away.
So I’m not waiting for tomorrow,
I will just enjoy today.

CHORUS
I’m living in the moment, living in the moment,
don’t know what’s around the bend.
Living in the moment, living in the moment,
I know everything must end.

I am walking down that long, long road,
got nothing better to do.
When I get to the crossroads, doesn’t matter which way I go.

CHORUS

Inst

When I’m sitting on the mountain,
I climbed so many times with you,
I won’t wonder what I’m doing here,
I will just enjoy the view.

CHORUS

thanks Digly, ha yes this could well be it! My Dad used that recipe at any hint of a cold... I don't like whiskey (possibly because it was the first thing I got very drunk on as a teenager?!) but am thinking maybe some of the honey Jack Daniels warmed up could work??
