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

Trev

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!

J&B aka I-75

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

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
