Blue Kentucky Rain

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

Excellent Kenny.
Sooth and professional.
You got the FX's on the vocal just write.
You really captured an ear with this one.

My Favorite Things - Seemingly Unlimited Flexibility!

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!
