Smuggler's Moon

©2015 Robert Randall Burke


Some are born to wealth
Some to poverty
You know a man can't grasp
What he cannot see
If all goes well
I will see you soon
Look for me
Beneath the Smuggler's Moon.

Just a few more hours
I'll be safe and sound
Boat is runnin' strong
Not a soul around
Charlie's at the helm
Whistlin' a tune
We're sneakin' in
Beneath the Smuggler's Moon.

Sliver of a moon
But I can see alright
Hold's full of rum
There'll be some fun tonight
Just a ship of fools
With a lucky gold doubloon
Makin' fast
Beneath the Smuggler's Moon.

Another keeper, Bob.

Really nice combination of instruments. The dobro works great in this.

Nice write. Your usual outstanding vocal.

The orchestral touches are nice. The guitar lead is tasty! (and well recorded)

Excellent mix. Love the bass, too...

Yes, we definitely like this, melodic and very good vocals.
Anne-Marie likes the drums (not pushy, she doesn't like those heavy kind of drums grin)

That's just a cool song and I'm not just saying that because you put a Charlie in there. Enjoyed my listen.

Great write there Bob. I liked the gentle nature of the melody.

Did I hear pizzicato from the Miroslav Philharmonik? Great touch

Fantastic vocal, and perfect mix.

Nice all around for sure.

Nice one Bob. Great imagery and the perfect
vocal to deliver it. Made it easy to see the
ship and the moon reflecting on the water.

The acoustic added just the right accent.
Nice touch with the strings also -- just
enough to add to the feel and not a bit more.

Excellent!

J&B

Very nice song Bob! You always have a good mix and the bass was the one thing that stood out (in a good way) in my ears. Smooth vocals and an interesting story. Enjoyed it all!

Tommy,

Thanks for listening and the kind remarks.



J&B,

Thanks. Appreciate it. I've always been fascinated by the rum-runners. My grandfather lived through all of that in Miami. Everybody in town was making bathtub gin!



Sonny,

Thanks. I love that bass as well. All I had to do was hit “Generate”, and there it was! grin



Rich,

Thanks. Appreciate the listen and comments.


Regards,

Bob

Bob,

what an excellent choice of instruments to make sure I got caught up in the feel.
The acoustic solo added so much to the song.

I really enjoyed that, made me want to take a walk along the cliff-tops, near where I live, until I saw the horizontal rain outside grin, so I'll play the song again, instead. grin
