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.

Long time program user and forum member Matt Finley had shared his tip regarding the Audiophile version of Band-in-a-Box earlier this year, and it's still valid today!

If you've ever wondered what the difference between the 'regular version' of Band-in-a-Box and the Audiophile version, make sure you read through his forum post: Tip: differences between the 'regular' and audiophile version - it's well written, and always great to hear about the program from fellow users!

The Audiophile Version includes the entire contents of the EverythingPAK and adds the uncompressed WAV or AIFF files for all the included RealTracks & RealDrums! Learn more about the Audiophile version: www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.audiophile.htm

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Wow!

There are so many ways to get in touch with people these days... phone, email, social networking, etc.... so of course we hear more feedback from program users these days!
...and here's what they're saying:

"I discovered Band in a Box about a year ago. I hesitated several times before purchasing it as I couldn't quite believe it was going to be as good as the hype. I eventually relented and I can honestly say, it's an incredible program and does some amazing things. As a songwriter, it's an indispensable tool and I can't imagine not having it."
-Vince C.

"I bought the first band in a box for my Atari 1040 ST and I used it for at least 10 years before upgrading to a Windows computer. After real drums, and then real tracks, came out I have upgraded every December since. The program is absolutely inspired and inspirational."
-Kirk O.

"Not everyone can find or afford real musicians to assist them when writing songs - and if working from home, as many songwriters do, there might not be room for them. Band In A Box does the next best thing and takes recordings of real musicians performing, then makes the material available pretty much in real time, in a form that adapts to your own composition by following the chord sequences. Hard to explain simply, but fairly amazing in practice."
-Steve C.

"Great tool for musicians - and the drummer keeps a steady beat!!"
-Maurice A.

"Great for learning new songs. I was weak on country rock songs and with the combination of using Riffstation and BIAB I am able to creat my own backup track for live performance and practicing songs with easier chording... Thanks PG!"
-Laurent C.

"I have it since 2001, use it all the time, great program!"
-John F.

"Thank you Band in a Box. I am a songwriter, and don't play several instruments, so I love being able to wear 2 hats and write and produce, and then later record vocals... You have probably saved me months/years on my project. Excellent tool. Thanks again!"
-Randy A.

"Didn't think I would ever go down that road but got roped into it by another muso friend, bought it and now loving it!"
-Fred P.
