Dealing with some health problems, so I can't comment much, but there has been some great stuff here lately.

Here's an oldie.

Rocky Mountain Lullabye

©2001 Robert Randall Burke


She left her home up in Baltimore
And hit out on the road
A minibus and a Coleman stove
And an old radio.

There was a light in the Western sky
Drawin' her like a firefly
And a Rocky Mountain Lullabye
That she wanted to hear.

She stopped in a Mesa town
At the edge of the sea
Where she could watch the sun go down
Where she could be free.

There was a light in the Western sky
Drawin' her like a firefly
And a Rocky Mountain Lullabye
That she wanted to hear.

What a cool song. Had a hint of Jimmy Buffet in the intro. Super vocal and backtrack

Really excellent Bob, right up to scratch, as usual.

I really have to say I loved the choice of using Pedal Steel

The Style is perfect for the song, and the lead break fills every thing out perfectly.

Stay healthy!

Nice.

I saw the Rocky Mountains for the first time when I flew home a few months back to visit my folks. It was a beautiful sight! This song reminded me of my travels. I rather enjoyed this mellow, sweet tune. Thank you for sharing!

From the start, I was thinking Marty Robbins.

Good old school country. Nothing like a "crying" steel to take you back.

The steel solo was OK. nice level bump to put it up front, but... it didn't resolve effectively. Could have been a bit better. Still nice, but .... you know.

Nice job.

"There was a light in the Western sky
Drawin' her like a firefly
And a Rocky Mountain Lullabye
That she wanted to hear."

As always, your writing is as "tight as it comes". I could have quoted the whole thing as an example. Never a word out of place. A lesser writer would take 10 times the space to say the same thing. Truly incredible writing. With such a "comfortable" singable melody - yet another skill on display.

I assume that is you playing the opening acoustic... super! Great sound, excellent recording - great acoustic sound, perfectly played.

The backing carries this perfectly. Enjoyed hearing a steel solo. Kenney Chesney could include this on any of his current records...

Keep it up, Mr. Burke.

Scott,

It's an oldie, but it's a true story. Been playing Buffett so many years some probably rubbed off. grin

Trevor,

The pedal steel solo actually has two steel tracks playing off each other. grin

That might not be as obvious on some systems. Thanks for the listen and kind comments.

Bob.....

I just gave a listen.
Good folk ballad and I liked your vocal and your delivery works very well.

Lyrically....these lines stand out to me:
"There was a light in the Western sky
Drawin' her like a firefly"

Well done....

We receive user feedback many ways, including our Facebook page, by email or phone, using the Comments tab on our Band-in-a-Box® pages, the My Favorite Things Forum, and more!

Like the great feedback recently posted by Al-David:
"I write and play in quite a few different genres. The flexibility BIAB gives me makes transpositions, from one genre to another, so easy and quick. A number of times I've created a piece, intending it to be a Smooth Jazz or Smooth RnB song. But when I generated the song, it just didn't work in the intended genre.

With a simple click of the Style Picker ... BAM! The song ended up as a pretty decent Pop song. I only had to replace a couple of instruments from the new style and alter a couple of chords..."
(read the full thread here.)

Post your feedback to our Forum - My Favorite Things - we'd love to hear it!
