Blue Kentucky Rain
© 2017 Kenny Leverett

I know that talk is cheap
That’s OK, I ain’t got a lot to say
I’m just wondering how you’re doing these days

Tell me how do you sleep
On all those fancy rich man satin sheets
Before I’d let you break my heart again
I’d rather be walking in the cold night wind
My heart don’t need your kind of pain
I’d rather be out in the blue Kentucky rain

They say you reap just what you sow
I’d be more than curious to know
Of you finding out all that glitters ain’t gold

Tell me how do you sleep
On all those fancy rich man satin sheets
Before I’d let you break my heart again
I’d rather be walking in the cold night wind
My heart don’t need your kind of pain
I’d rather be out in the blue Kentucky rain

My heart don’t need your kind of pain
I’d rather be out in the blue Kentucky rain

Yeah, I love rockabilly! Great groove on this and love your vocal!

My favorite line: "My heart don’t need your kind of pain
I’d rather be out in the blue Kentucky rain"

Bringing that piano in panned right during that second chorus was unexpected but really worked well I thought!

Good stuff Kenny, very much enjoyed this one!

Kenny,

You impress me more with each offering...

Excellent write. Tight. Your melodies are SO "singable" - a rare quality in writers... On top of (or under) good lyrics, it's "gold".

Good BAND. Excellent vocal. Good mix.

Great listen.

Great job Kenny, I particularly liked the hook line. Hooks are sometimes hard to find these days. I also really liked the Rockabilly styling. Your vocal rocked!

Wow, the groove on this is infectious! It sounds professionally mixed, and the songwriting is well done here. It's just the right balance of catchy and raw.

Thanks for sharing smile

Hi Kenny. I think Torrey summed this one up pretty good. I'm working on a rock-a-billy tune myself. Love the genre. The added reverb on your vocal really sells this as the real deal. You captured the feel perfectly. Great job!

This patch includes some RealTracks audio updates we have made since the release of Band-in-a-Box 2018. 2018 users should be sure to download the latest Band-in-a-Box 2018 update patch (519), as that patch includes the bulk of the fixes for RealTracks released with 2018. This is a larger download than typical because it updates the Vocal Oohs and Aahs RealTracks audio files. There is more information and Audiophile patches available here.

Summary of RealTracks Audio updates:

Added: Help Video button Added to the Audio Harmony dialog.
Improved: ABC opening improvements with some accidentals, and leadin bars that occur in middle of song.
Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).
Improved: Lyrics will be now read from .mid files that used to be karaoke files (.kar) and got renamed somewhere along the line.
Improved: Support for RealTracks that should be transposed only lower (ie heavy metal guitars) and for future Improved metal guitar comping.
Improved: The Audio Harmony Dialog has been rearranged to be more intuitive when using Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
Fixed: Audio harmonies might be missing some notes.
Fixed: Audio harmonies would be generated with the wrong notes if selecting a range of audio in the middle of the track.
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash on bootup with error "Read Beyond end of file".
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box should show message if the latest VJT application is not installed when the user tries to render videos.
Fixed: File > Open Special > Open Audio was importing audio instead of opening it in a new song.
Fixed: In the Bar Settings window, "Chordsheet and Notation - Start a New Line" should say "Notation - Start a New Line".
Fixed: It was not possible to record audio using WAS audio drivers if "Output always on" was disabled.
Fixed: Misc. RealTracks updates.
Fixed: Quicklist drums picker sometimes showing too many drums in the list.
Fixed: Redundant flash messages were showing.
Fixed: Removing a custom drums from a track would still display Drums as the name of the loop in the track.
Fixed: Rendering audio while there is a region of bars highlighted in the chord sheet might cause a crash.

Fixed: Some 12-key RealTracks were incorrectly set to allow transposition.
Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog needed some hints.
Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog was missing the new Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
