A little song to Penelope on our Anniversary. All BIAB except for a little rhythm and 2nd guitar.

The Little Things

©2015 Robert Randall Burke


An old guitar
And a beat up car
Just a couple dreamers
Wishin' on a star
We were young and blind
But the world was kind
I never thought
We'd ever get this far.


It's the little things
The little things
That can make a pauper
Feel just like a king
It's the little things
The little things
That make the biggest difference in the world.


Smoky cabarets
California days
Singin' for our supper
In the small cafes
We were young and free
You completed me
And saved me from my
Restless outlaw ways.

HI Bob ...

Happy anniversary to you and Penelope!!!

This reminds me of something Ed Bruce would have done in the late 80's. His voice is deeper than yours, but you have a lot of similarities otherwise.

Pretty song! Simple but enough of everything without a lot of stuff to distract from the great vocal and the message. We loved it!

Alan & Di

A terrific write, Robert...

You are a master at painting perfect pictures in so few words. This fits our story as well as it does yours (though ours took place on the East Coast - Florida to Philly)...

Happy Anniversary!

How about letting Penelope play bass on one of these?.... (does she sing???)

I like it!

It's a great day when all the little things come together -


Both in song and in life.


No little thing here, just another top notch song.

Happy Anniversary.

Hi Bob.

Another country classic!

Great choice of instruments and I always like the way you get so much emotion into the vocals.

Perfect arrangement and mix.

Mighty fine tune with a wonderful message. Nice arrangement -- just right. I enjoyed my early morning listen. Sounds like a pro recording to me.

"It's the little things
The little things
That can make a pauper
Feel just like a king
It's the little things
The little things
That make the biggest difference in the world."

Amen....something the two of us have
lived for 35 years.

This is a wonderfully arranged, produced and sung
tribute that we both enjoyed...a lot.
