Guardian Angel

https://soundcloud.com/peterf1957/guardian-angel

A wistful true story of misbegotten youth set in Australia (Cullendullah is on the NSW South Coast and Town Hall station is in the centre of Sydney.)

Leon Vocal & Lyrics
Me Backing vocals and quite a lot of guitar.

Didn’t appear to have saved the BIAB track but Real tracks play Everything except lead and some rhythm guitar.

Lyrics
Pulled into the Cullendullah roadhouse
Cause a light upon the dash was blinking red
‘When was the last time you put oil in this thing?’
Was what the man at the Cullendullah roadhouse said

I guess I wasn’t very conscientious
In those days about such things, or much at all
By God I was so foolish, young and feckless
The things I didn’t know it makes me shudder to recall

I must’ve had a guardian angel
Spreading out her wings to cover me
I must’ve had a guardian angel
How else I made it through those days is a flat out mystery

Woke up behind the wheel of my little Renault
With branches whipping past an inch away
It was raining cats and dogs and I was drunk as Boris Yeltsin
How I lived to tell the tale I really couldn’t say

I must’ve had a guardian angel
Spreading out her wings to cover me
I must’ve had a guardian angel
How else I made it through those days is a flat out mystery

Reclining on a bench on Town Hall Station
Missed the last train home an hour ago
No money in my pocket, so I decide to walk it
It’s only twenty miles so it’s up and off we go

Never had much sense of direction
So of course it wasn’t long before I badly lost my way
A kindly taxi driver took pity on the fool
And took me all the way back home even though I couldn’t pay

I must’ve had a guardian angel
Spreading out her wings to cover me
I must’ve had a guardian angel
How else I made it through those days is a flat out mystery

Hello Peter,

That's a very nice rocker!
Cool guitar playing and smooth backing vocals on the chorus.

Great verse!! Also loved the Boris Yeltsin line. Fun tune, and a lot of fine guitar. Enjoyed it a lot! Take care. Greg

We certainly agree with Greg...that is a cool verse.
Fine vocals and perfect guitar pickin' for the tune.

Oh, loving that guitar tone too.

We much enjoyed it.

Rock on!!

Peter and Leon, "How I lived to tell the tale I really couldn’t say"- the story of my life. Good rocker and some fine guitar. I thought the intro was a bit long but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Keep em coming. Tom

A good rocker, Peter. Nice guitar works throughout.

I listened first. I found it a bit difficult to follow the story - because of the music. So, then listened while reading the lyric. A well-told story. It made me think that the lyric style and music style were a bit mismatched - both being good, but perhaps needing different partners.

Thanks for all the comments.
Alyn - lucky you weren't coming the other way - I recall going down a one way street the wrong way with him 40 years or so ago.
Floyd - I have an acoustic version quite different - you might have liked that one better (I think Leon prefers that one).

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.

•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
