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.

Bob just said it right! This is excellent in every way. Love the harmonies. Great arrangement, vocal, and mix. Easier to say what's wrong with this one: NOTHING!! Take care. Greg

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.

Bob, This nicely flowing tune has a story that is easy to follow. I enjoyed it a lot. Again your voice is the perfect delivery vehicle. Good stuff! Tom

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

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
