Won’t Bring Her Home


Yesterday I was a rooster
Today I’m just a feather duster
Rising from my bed this morning
Took all the willpower I could muster
But all the willpower in the world
Won’t bring back my darling girl
All the messages I left upon her phone

Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home

I begged for her forgiveness
Said it didn’t mean a thing
But she just looked right through me
Slipped off her wedding ring
All my tears and my excuses
They won’t ever change her mind
Beg her to think about the happiness we’ve known

Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home

Yesterday I was a fool
All the things I took for granted
How did I slide so far down?
From the heights that I commanded
All the stupid little lies
All the hurt I trivialized
Blame it all upon that damn y chromosome

Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home

Nice one!

Some very cool lines, I especially like the opening line "Yesterday I was a rooster
Today I’m just a feather duster" and the closing line "All the hurt I trivialized
Blame it all upon that damn y chromosome"

Lovely fluid and melodic guitar playing, just the way I like to hear it.

Good tune you two, enjoyed!

Leon & Peter...

Cool song. Rhyming chromosome/home was original!

Very cool instrumentation. Excellent mix. Good vocal.

SUPER nice guitar! Sounded like George Harrison was in the studio!!! Terrific.

Clever write Peter. I really liked the chord progression and the drum groove.
And of course the guitar work was excellent.
Great write my friend. Rob

I couldn't agree more. A really good write, arrangement and delivery. It has it all. Cool song and great job by both of you. Merry Christmas,

Peter & Leon,
Who could resist that opening line? - brilliant!
I liked the "won`t bring her home" refrain ( catchy in a foreboding way) and I always enjoy Leon`s vocal style.
Then there`s the guitar playing; up there with your best, Peter!

Really enjoyed this Peter & Leon.

You delivered something from inside the box but outside the square wink .

Cool guitar lines, a bit of Santana might have snuck in there even, and all wrapped up with a top drivin' beat.

Great effort.

Dear "PeterF" and Leon...

The downwardly spiraling sense of despair over the loss of someone's love is vividly dramatized in your song, "Won't Bring Her Home". The music implacably drives home the finality of the situation.

Leon, your vocal performance would convince a doctor that you were in a state of shock over "her" departure. "PeterF", your guitar solos were like licks of flame rising out of the pit of the private hell of a man who is so desperately, agonizingly sorry for his mis-steps on the path to happiness that he can't believe he did it to himself:

"Yesterday I was a fool
All the things I took for granted
How did I slide so far down?
From the heights that I commanded"


Oh, yes. The guilt is as thick as steam. Sleepness nights and fatigued-blurred days are definitely in this poor man's future. I think it would be a good idea for someone to empty out his medicine cabinet and put a trigger guard on his pistol...don't you? laugh

Sorrowfully frown ,

LOREN

Hello, Peter

Very nice bluesy rock!
Super lead guitar!
As floyd said, sounded like George Harrison was in the studio!!!
The minor cliché chord progression on bass is also very effective.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
