Back In Their Day

Very modal and reminiscent of a dark Appalachian dirge. There are hints of some of the songs from the Eagles "Desperado" album. The only style change was to add a RT Bluegrass Soloist Fiddle for some balance to the Resonator Guitar, which we showcased as the lead instrument in the final mix. Harmonies courtesy the TC Helicon VL3X.

Thanks for listening,
Bob

Back In Their Day
Bob Buford C 2017

A shy, lonely girly from the nice part of town
She'd never known love in her life
A poor boy who slept in a tent on the ground
He longed for a home and a wife

She saw him one day near the lake south of town
He fished while they talked of their plight
And after a few days of sneaking around
They ran away one summer night

I've waited for you all of my life, sweetheart
I've seen you each night in my dreams
Maybe it's time for those dreams to come true
And love's not as far as it seems

Oh my sweet darlin', please stay here with me
We'll build us a life of our own
Your father would not let our happiness be
He's plans for you now that you're grown

Her folks back in town were at panic next day
Her Pa vowed that boy would be killed
But while he was reading her goodbye note
There were married near south Masonville

Oh my sweet darlin' I'm yours and you're mine
We've started a life of our own
Your family's disowned you, but they'll see in time
We're free now, so we can move on.

Now I'm not claiming that all that's true
I wasn't there so I can't say
But Grandma told me, now I'm telling you
That's how it happened...back in their day

What a tune! There isn't a thing I'd change - the vocals are on point, the arrangement is superb, and it is the ideal level of catchy-ness smile I like the lyrics too! They paint a picture very well.

Thank you for sharing, you should be proud of this!

"I've waited for you all of my life, sweetheart
I've seen you each night in my dreams
Maybe it's time for those dreams to come true
And love's not as far as it seems"

Out of all the lyrics, these are my favourite. I really loved the arrangement of this song. Great job.
