The Hobo
©2016 Robert Randall Burke


Walkin' down a lonely road
Into a setting sun
Kickin' up that Georgia clay
Guitar slung across my back
And I ain't never comin' back this way
Not this way.

She was just a Country girl
Livin' in a small town world
Ah, she wanted me to stay
I was just passin' through
That's what hobos do, they say
They say.

I can't do nothin'
When I hear that highway call
So many places
And I need to see them all
Pray for the Hobo
Cause it's comin' on to Fall
On to Fall.

Footloose and fancy free
Will be the death of me
But it's the only life I know
Another town, another bar
Another fiver in the jar
Then I've got to go
Got to go.

I watched the video, Bob. But then, I had to go back and listen from the Bandcamp page. All I had to do was close my eyes and listen. The images are all there in beautiful, living color. Robert Randal Burke songs don't need no stinkin' videos!!! The words paint pictures.

"Footloose and fancy free
Will be the death of me
But it's the only life I know
Another town, another bar
Another fiver in the jar
Then I've got to go
Got to go."

See.

You have a signature sound yet it never gets redundant.

Your ability to write and produce songs that perfectly match
your vocal prowess is the key to why we have always been
big fans of your productions -- and this is no exception.

Like Tom mentioned...the story flows along with well written
imagery.

Superb in a word.

Hi Bob,

Beautifully scripted and sung. That section at 1.36, just you and the guitar before you bring in back the full arrangement, does it for me, it glued together that whole country feel, loved it.

Pat,

Actually, this is somewhat autobiographical. In my mis-spent youth, I did a bit of hoboin'. grin

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
