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

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."
