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

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.)
