Pickup Truck Cowboy

©2011 Robert Randall Burke




Well, the sun's goin' down
In the desert tonight
And the cowboy's alone with his blues.
There's no one in town
Not even a light
So he looks for a friend in the booze.


He's a pickup truck cowboy
His pony is gone
To the pasture where old ponies go
His six-gun is rusty
It lies on the shelf
Can you tell me
Where old cowboys go?


The moon's on the rise
And the coyote calls
In sadness, the song of his soul.
Like the cowboy, he's broken
From too many falls
In silence, the time takes it's toll.

You have such a strong command of melody!

All the way around, this song sounds genuine to how it should. I feel it's really well produced...not just mixed, the sound choices, placement of those sounds AND mix is great!

And of course, I have ALWAYS been a big fan of your vocal tone.

Great job!

Another excellent production Robert. You've captured a great lyric, forlorn and melancholy, and packaged and delivered it with a perfect musical production.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

My word of choice, forlorn, has already been used but your vocal so captures the trail worn, weary feel of the protagonist. Yet your creative write keeps it from becoming maudlin or over-wrought.

Everything works toward this end.

Powerful and enjoyable!

Robert,

this must be one of your best vocals so far. They sound brighter than usual. Different EQ settings or something?
The song itself is very Pro sounding all around.
Wonderful work!

Rob

Bob, This is another fine write with an excellent melody and standout vocals. The chord changes are quite unusual and make this a pleasure to listen to. Tom

A really nice write and performance

Hello Bob,

A real nice country waltz! Your backing tracks are simply perfect and the chord arrangement, particularly on the chorus, give the song a a continually fresh sound. Your vocal fits nicely in this. Terrific lyric, too. What a great listen! We totally enjoyed our listen,

Alan & Di

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 Build 3 Patch Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 users can download a new patch update here!

Summary of changes with Build 3:
Added: Always on MME added (checkbox setting).
Added: Drag and drop from the drop station to VSTI plugins, that support this, is now implemented
Added (build 2): Localization support.
Fixed: a few miscellaneous minor localization and help-topic link issues.
Fixed: FX button now correctly turns blue if MIDI track is actually using a VSTi or DXi synth.
Fixed: Improved support for the Vielklang VST instant harmonies plugin.
Fixed: Program title was changed to 'file converter' if a conversion needed to be done such as after recording (this affected the title shown when alt-tabbing or hovering over the icon on the task bar, etc.).
Fixed: Saving to XML would result in the timing being wrong, if the song's PPQ was not 120.
Fixed: the choose note dialog in Notation Window had garbled text.
Fixed: The time location of time-based VSTi plugins was being continually advanced when RB was stopped. This has been fixed so that the VSTi time location now gets set to PT's current time location when playback is not happening.
Fixed: when drawing a slur in the situation of notes being extremely close together, program could potentially slow down or freeze.
Fixed (build 2): Code 740 error could happen after installation finished when launching program.
