HELLO GOD



HE LEFT HOME WITH ALL HE HAD
IN A LITTLE BROWN BAG
TOOK OFF DOWN THAT WINDING ROAD
AND HE NEVER LOOKED BACK

NO FEAR IN HIS EYES NO WAVES GOODBYE
COS HE'D BEEN TOLD
THAT HE'D MEET GOD
SOMEWHERE DOWN THAT ROAD

NOW THE HOURS PASSED
AND TURNED INTO MILES AND MILES
AND EVERYWHERE HE LOOKED
HE SAW GODS SMILE
TIRED HE SAT DOWN
ON THAT WOODEN SEAT
JUST HOPING AND A PRAYING
THAT GOD HE'D MEET

AND IN THE BLINKING OF AN EYE
HE WAS SITTING BY HIS SIDE

HELLO GOD
HOW DO YOU DO
ITS SO NICE TO MEET YOU
TELL ME
WHAT YOU GONNA DO TODAY
CURE THE WORLD OF ALL ITS PAIN
BRING MORE SUNSHINE THAN THE RAIN
SHOW THE PEOPLE
THERES A BETTER WAY
HELLO GOD
HOPE YOU HAVE A NICE DAY


NOW TO CHILD OF EIGHT YEARS OLD
THERES LOT OF STORIES TO BE TOLD
ABOUT ALL THE GOOD THAT GOD DID
HOW HE WALKED ON TOP OF WATER
AND HIS FAITH NEVER FALTERD
WHO HE WAS AND HOW HE LIVED

AND IN THE BLINKING OF AN EYE
THE CHILD KNEW GOD WAS BY HIS SIDE


HELLO GOD
HOW DO YOU DO
ITS SO NICE TO MEET YOU
TELL ME
WHAT YOU GONNA DO TODAY
CURE THE WORLD OF ALL ITS PAIN
BRING MORE SUNSHINE THAN THE RAIN
SHOW THE PEOPLE
THERES A BETTER WAY
HELLO GOD
HOPE YOU HAVE A NICE DAY

THAT BOY KNEW RIGHT THERE RIGHT THEN
THAT HE'D TALK TO GOD AGAIN
AND HE DOES EVERY SINGLE DAY
SAID HE'D WALK A MILLION MILES
JUST TO SAY

HELLO GOD
HOW DO YOU DO
ITS SO NICE TO MEET YOU
TELL ME
WHAT YOU GONNA DO TODAY
CURE THE WORLD OF ALL ITS PAIN
BRING MORE SUNSHINE THAN THE RAIN
SHOW THE PEOPLE
THERES A BETTER WAY
HELLO GOD
HOPE YOU HAVE A NICE DAY

What a nice little tune, Biglad smile I like the arrangement on this, and I found it a perfect level of catchiness as well.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Brad,

This is great little song. Your vocal is your best in some time and the backing tracks are perfect. Good story in the lyric. I really enjoyed this. Thanks for the sweet listen!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
