Hi all. Wanted to try and write one of those mid to late 1960 classic country tunes.
So this is my effort. All comments welcome Rob.

Dont Bother Me


Ive been living twelve long months with out you.
But then you go and ring me once again.

Ive been rid of all my thoughts about you.
But then you go and bring it back again.

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me
..................................................................

Bidge

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me
..................................................................

Ive been spending all my nights with out you.
Even through in darkness makes me wail.

I been spending day light hours not think about you.
When evening falls your there with out fail.

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me
..................................................................
Bridge

Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me
..................................................................
Bridge
Chorus
..................................................................
Wont you let me be Dont bother me.
Wont you set me free Dont be bothering me

Sounds great!

Sounds like classic country to me!

one thing:

around :51 starts some strings and voices I think. They are beautiful, but if you were to pitch this as an era piece you might need to take them out and just it let ride without them.

So maybe you could have two version in case you want to pitch it as a period piece??

I could be wrong.

Rob,

This is a great song and vocal. I love the way your voice slides into those notes... Excellent job.

Love the fade-out ending as well.

Start with the oom-pah bass, bring in the piano... Perfect.

Nice vocal, good to hear the Aaaah sneak in for a visit.

Bob already mentioned the Roy Orbison-ish vocal slides, but it's worth mentioning again. Nice! smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

This is awesome! You definitely captures that old school country vibe here. It got my toe tapping the whole way through, and I can't help but imagine how amazing this would sound performed live. Your vocal performance is seriously on point here as well.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Rob, I think you certainly accomplished what you set out to do! I remember those days of classic country music and you nailed it! Your vocal kind of reminds me of a mix of Jim Reeves and Marty Robbins. Not a bad thing at all! Great work! Thanks, Torrey
