I sit and Cry for you
Words and Music by Troy Schiewe
Copyright 2019

I start every day the same
My heart is calling your name
Since I learned you're untrue
Well I sit and cry for you

My friends asks if I'll be okay
I know I'll never be the same
Can't believe we are thru
So sit and cry for you

Back on the day that we met you know I loved you from the start
But all your scheming and your cheating you went and broke my heart

I start every day the same
For months and months I've been this way
Since I learned you're untrue
Well I sit and cry for you

Back on the day that we met you know I loved you from the start
But all your scheming and your cheating you went and broke my heart

I start every day is the same
My heart is calling your name
Since I learned you're untrue
Well I sit and cry for you
I sit and cry for you
I sit and cry for you

Excellent specimen of "classic" country: solid write, well produced, good singing.

Checks all the right boxes for me. smile

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

Good work Troy! Definitely had that classic boomchik feel. Really nailed that country vibe. Good use of reverb on the vocals too. Well done!

Troy,
Very nice tune! Reminded me of the classic pop songs of 50's-60's.
Vocals / production is excellent!

Thank you for posting!

Misha.

Very Buddy Holly when he was with Bob Montgomery - protorocknpop.
The guitar solo doesn't quite match but that may be that I'm not too fussed on Brent's stuff generally.
Terrific vocal recording.
Good fun and well done.

Wow - loving the throwback classic country vibes here! It flows tremendously well, and your vocals sit perfectly on the backing tracks. A really powerful and catchy hook to boot.

Nice work - thanks so much for sharing smile

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com
