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 totally agree.

This is a keeper.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

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.

Thanks for the kind words. I know the video is cheezy - it's just a Windows Movie Maker job. eek

Pat,

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

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
