Slow Train (keep on rolling) - Sound Cloud

Hi again

Well people seem to be appreciating my efforts so here's my third new song. I actually wrote, recorded and posted this on my Soundcloud about a month ago and never got around to posting the link on here.
That means I've now got to re-open the Band-In-A-Box file and make a note of the information.
I'll post that info along with the lyrics in the next post.

Another steady tune with a country feel to it. All band in a box generated apart from the main rhythm guitar which is me playing and vocal (and backing vocals) which is me.

Again all BIAB files saved as individual wavs and then imported onto my Tascam DP24SD for addition of my parts and engineering/mixdown/mastering.

It's only my madness that stops me from going insane.

Slow Train (keep on Rolling) - Mr Jones?

Slow train keep on moving
Slow train keep on moving
Take me home again
Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
take me home, home, home again

When I left this town a long long time ago
I thought I'd make it on my own
Life on the silver screen or an old time picture show
I taught me things I'd never known

Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
Take me home, home, home again

With all the friends I've had good times along the way
I've been to places far & wide
I've seen the desert and the sun set in LA
Keep all the memories they provide

Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
Take me home, home, home again

But the speed of your vacation
Reveals your temprament
It's the journey not the destination
That's relevant

Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
Take me home, home, home again

So now I'm heading back to where it all began
My body tired my mind is strong
I got through all my life without a master plan
Just made it up as I went along

Slow train keep on moving
Slow train keep on moving
Take me home again
Slow train keep on rolling
Slow train keep on rolling
Take me home, home, home again

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
