Hi all. This is my latest effort.
Little different to recent songs.
All comments welcome. Rob

Leaving Narrabri


Can you feel the summer breeze brush against your skin.
Leaning on the door Sill as we drive.

Dont know how long its been, since we said goodbye.
To the folks back home in Narrabri.
...................................................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.
...................................................................................


Bridge

...................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.
(Where going home to Narrabri)

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.
...................................................................................

We'll keep pushing through the night till the sun begins to rise.

One more hill and we'll be home, then we'll back home in Narabri

then we'l back home in Narrabri

We'll just keep along the suns almost gone be it right or wrong.
When we're back home in Narrabri

...................................................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.

Good song, love your vocal on this, and I like the lyrics too.

Great job on the production too, that breakdown at 1:15 and bringing it back at 1:40 worked like a charm and really makes the song something special IMHO, nice one!

What a tune! I really enjoyed this. It is quite catchy, while maintaining a thought provoking theme. It sounds genuine and heartfelt. Not to mention, the arrangement here is on point.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

What a fantastic song! Maybe it's just me, but I totally got a hint of a Johnny Cash vibe with this particular song. Maybe it's the vocals! I really enjoyed the lyrics to this particular tune. Excellent job.

Can't wait for the next one.

Rob,

A really good lonesome road feeling to this - very nice soulful vocal and that sweetness in the melody makes me want to sing along on the chorus.
The resonator and baritone guitars sound great together.
Very good!

Robert

Beautifully performed.
I entirely agree with Robert.

Great track and great production. It really fits the Australiana tag. It brought the outback back home to me...
Just a quick note on the lyrics, I think you meant "we're" not "where".

I fully agree with Dave. he summed it up perfectly. This is one of your very best - of the ones I've heard. that was a real joy to listen to. Thanks for the pleasure!

Also, before I forget, the reso guitar with the deep reverb was a real nice touch!

Wishing you well,

Alan

Rob I also think that this is one if not your best today. Super mix, dynamics, lyrics and vocal.

I love these lines "And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end."

Great lyrics here.

Two thumbs up.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.
