Jesse's Gone Away

©2008 Robert Randall Burke


Sunday morning
She's all alone
Never called
And he never came home
Guess the honeymoon is over
Like they say.

Friends told her
He would never change
All this time
And it's still the same
Now all she wants to do is get away.

Jesse isn't gonna cry no more
Jesse's headin' out that old front door
Jesse's startin' on a whole new life today
When he asks you where she's gone
When he finds that he's all alone
Just tell him
Jesse's gone away.

Jesse's always been a small town girl
Now she's headin' out to see the world
Never liked this small town anyway
There's a better life out there somewhere
This old Chevy's gonna take her there
Left a note sayin “Jesse's gone away”.

Jesse isn't gonna cry no more
Jesse's headin' out that old front door
Jesse's startin' on a whole new life today
When he asks you where she's gone
When he finds that he's all alone
Just tell him
Jesse's gone away.

Tell him there ain't nothin' more to say
But Jesse's Gone Away.



Thanks for listening.



Regards,

Bob

Beautiful song, Bob.

A heart-rending tale, but with a message of hope. A classic piece of writing.

Every bit as polished and professional as ever, with your signature vocal delivery.

Loved the whole thing.

Cheers, ROG.

Bob,

As is so often the case (with your songs)... this is a "beautiful write". No wasted words, everything in the right place... moving in the right directions at all times...

"Jesse's always been a small town girl
Now she's headin' out to see the world
Never liked this small town anyway
There's a better life out there somewhere
This old Chevy's gonna take her there
Left a note sayin “Jesse's gone away”.

Jesse isn't gonna cry no more
Jesse's headin' out that old front door
Jesse's startin' on a whole new life today
When he asks you where she's gone
When he finds that he's all alone
Just tell him
Jesse's gone away."



GOOSEBUMPS.



Damn! This is good.


Who cares if the production is good (It's perfect). It's such a dang fine write - what else matters...


Ah.


GOOSEBUMPS.

HI Bob,

Fabulous song. Definitely my fave from you in quite some time. Your vocal is exquisite and the song is a great vehicle for it. An economy of words and a surplus of story. A tip of the hat to you.

Fantastic song, 90 dB! I have a feeling this one's going to be stuck in my head for a while. The vocal delivery, the subject matter, the production - all on point! You should be very proud of this one.

Greg says it perfectly.....

This is such a well crafted song because you are a true craftsman.
