One More for the Road
By David Snyder

V1

There’s a bar in a small town
On the Georgia Line
With a sign that simply reads “One for the Road”
A handsome man in blue jeans was sitting in the corner
At a table drinking all alone
When sad Darlene offered him another beer
He said no, but bring some wine for my best friend
She said Mister, there ain’t nobody sitting there
Nobody’s been in here since you came in

Pre-Chorus

He said Darlene, I’m sitting here with Jesus now
Cause I’ve been hurtin’ almost as bad you
So if you bring a glass of wine
And if you have a little time
I just might have a couple words of truth

CH:

Yeah, you can you can say I know him
And you can say I owe him
You can say I owe him everything I own
And right now I owe him one more for the road
Right now I owe him one more for the road

V2

So Darlene sat down
and found her cigarettes
and she fumbled for the lighter in her skirt
she told him all the things that men had done to her
how her whole life had been a curse
when looking in the mirror in the morning
she just felt tired and useless in her skin
and if not for the baby she was carrying inside
She sometimes had the dream her life would end

Pre Chorus

But the man said Darlene, you know you’re beautiful
And my friend says that things are ‘bout to change
He said the hardest thing to do
is just forgive yourself
But if you do he’ll handle every other thing

CH:

You can you can say I know him
And you can say I owe him
You can say I owe him everything I own
So I pray that you will listen to every word I say
Let’s just call it one more for the road
Yeah I pray that you will listen to every word I say,
Let’s just call it, let’s just call it, one more for the road
Darlene
It’s one more for the road

FANTATIC!!! I LOVE IT!! Love the beginning with just a floating texture (recognized the dreamy guitar in an instant). Pad sounds so nice (what kind of processing?). Love the way the arrangement builds, and the lyrics are AWESOME-always kept me wondering what was coming up. Heartfelt vocal. This is a gem David!!! Take care. Greg

Liked that. Nice pads at the beginning and a jangly guitar sound. Builds nicely and a good story as others have mentioned.

Cheers.
Mike.

Hi David,

Congratulations on yet another worthy Users Showcase contribution.

It seems to me that with each new composition you bring to the forum, you are really honing your writing and production skills. It's easy to hear the effort that you are putting into getting the best creation possible. As I've said before, I admire your imagination and your creativity.

All the best,
Noel

Thanks Greg.

I am not using a lot off effects these, days, very minimal. The only thing on the synth is little bit of Ozone 5--orchestral setting. And there is an echoplex VST on the guitar.

Glad you liked it!

David,

Love this! You`ve gone to such a cinematic place in the lyrics- the scene is set and we are drawn in to a heart-to-heart that is very powerful.
A fine vocal and atmospheric arrangement tops off one of your best.

Robert

David,

I was just watching 'Hell on Wheels'tv series.
For those who don't know this tv series... it is about the very first railroads in America.
This song would fit right in as for atmosphere.
Man, you are so prolific (even more than us laugh )

Nice, David... I got so caught up in the story I almost missed your great production. Has a real "Kristofferson" vibe about it.

Good job, man. Keep 'em coming.

Greg beat me too it again.

You get stronger with each post. The music gets more interesting - and more "musical". The lyrics get more cinematic - yet, more subtle - a strong combination. Your vocal here is powerful.

The overall combination is very original. Kind of Americana-alt-rock... Snydermuisc.

A terrific listen.

What they both said. Somebody mentioned it already but the write very much reminded us of Kristofferson. That lyric will rip the paint right off of your heart.

Superb!

Another one I nearly missed! Take your eye of this forum for a day or two and you can miss songwriting gold.

Wow! Powerful lyrics accompanied by such a chilled backing . "David Chillout" style is perfect for this track. Is that a User Track?

Excellent job,
Jez

Thanks Jez,

Yeah that is a user defined style I put together.

I think most of the real tracks I used are in the original post.

Thanks a lot! I am glad you liked it! Loved your last one!!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
