A Hundred Miles From Austin
©2015 Robert Randall Burke


I'm only 'bout a hundred miles from Austin
Hopin' she'll be waitin' for me there
My V8's makin' wicked time
A couple hours and she'll be mine
A yellow rose of Texas in her hair.

There's sure a lot of pretty girls in Texas
They grow 'em very beautiful down there
But of all the girls in the Lone Star State
Only one makes me palpitate
A yellow rose of Texas in her hair.

Mile markers flashing by
I've got that pedal down
Underneath that Texas sky
We're gonna paint the town
I'm only 'bout a hundred miles from Austin
Hopin' she'll be waitin' for me there.





Regards,

Bob

Bob, a really great number. You've put this together well, the lyrics are great, and the overall song has a fantastic toe-tappin' feel. The tune reminds me a little of 'Six Days On The Road' (Dave Dudley), so it already created some nostalgia.

I really liked the lyrics, and the line: 'A yellow rose of Texas in her hair.' put the icing on the cake.

Nice

Loved it. What a cool way to start the song. And it has a really spot on Texas two-step swing.

Nice unique chords in this one... from the verses to the choruses.

I immediately thought of Ray Benson and Asleep At The Wheel....

then you hit the instrumental break...and the fiddle and steel nailed it. The only nit is the fiddle break was a single fiddle and not a twin texas fiddle break, but hey... I still like it.

Beautifully conceived and arranged!! Nice vocal too!

But of all the girls in the Lone Star State
Only one makes me palpitate
A yellow rose of Texas in her hair.

Got a particular kick out of that lyric. Really fun listen Bob!!

Take care. Greg

Bob,

A good ole foot tappin', desk slappin' song.
I like the line " A yellow rose of Texas in her hair."

I can almost imagine me driving and listening to this and then trying to get the exhaust note in tune, but then I'd be in Austin a lot quicker or be the proud owner of a speeding ticket mad

great stuff

Alyn

Good one, Mr. Burke!

palpitate. Pretty fancy word...

Good everything. The drums sound especially nice (did you add cymbal sounds?)

Keep this up and you will end up on the I75 tour...

Bob, Have I ever heard the word palpitate in a song? Hmmm. I'll bet Lyle Lovett would love it! The second chord is a nice touch. Great vocal. Sounding really good. Tom

Thanks for listening and the kind remarks. We actually cover "6 Days", and are working this one up to play live as well.

Oh man do we ever love Western Swing and this one,
well, it SWINGS!

Great vocal delivery that is reminiscent of Tommy Duncan's
super smooth work with Bob Wills.

All that's plenty for us but then toss in a fine write and
the perfect mix for the genre we'll just serve up a big
"WOW!"

Enough said other than we purchased a download
for one of our swing playlists.

Nice!

Well Bob, you got my vote. I immediately thought of Ray Benson and Asleep At The Wheel.... what Guitarhacker said!!

Texas swing for sure!! Sounds like you may have spent some time in Texas or a least listen to some Texas swing.

I hear Asleep At The Wheel on the radio in Texas from time to time and this song would play well there.

"My V8's makin' wicked time" is a cool line.

Good stuff.

Cheers,

Billy

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

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 clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•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.
