LEAVING DALLAS IN THE FADING LIGHT
WITH A BRACE UPON THIS LEG
HEADED SOUTH FOR AN 8 SECOND RIDE
AND A CHANCE TO BEGIN AGAIN

BUT THIS BODYS TORN AND TIRED NOW
AINT NO STAR OF THIS RODEO
MAYBE ITS TIME TO JUST SETTLE ON DOWN
MAYBE TIME TO JUST LET GO


ONE MORE RIDE BEFORE THE ROPE IT SPLITS
AND PULLS THIS OLD MAN DOWN
ONE MORE GATE BEFORE I QUIT
AND LEAVE THE RODEO I FOUND
IM SAYING GOODBYE TO EVERYTHING
GOODNIGHT SWEET RODEO KING


I FOUND THIS DRINKING HOLE OUT OF THE WAY
I SHUFFLE BACK AND FORTH ALL NIGHT LONG
TELL THEM STORYS ABOUT THE RODEO KING
AND SERVE THEM ALL FROM DUSK TILL DAWN


TIME HAS FINALLY CAUGHT UP WITH ME
MY LEATERED HANDS ACHE WITH THE COLD
NO MORE AM I THE RODEO KING
IM JUST A TIRED AND LOST AND LONELY SOUL

NO MORE RIDES NOW THE ROPE HAS SPLIT
NOW THIS OLE MAN HAS GONE DOWN
NO MORE GATES NOW THAT IVE QUIT
THE GREATEST LOVE I HAD FOUND

IVE SAID GOODBYE TO EVERYTHING
GOODNIGHT SWEET RODEO KING

I love a rodeo song. I've written a few cowboy/rodeo songs in my time.... It's a hard life on the rodeo circuit.

One of my favorite rodeo singers was Moe Bandy.... if you're not familiar with him, look him up on YouTube.

Nice mellow song.

You're good at this stuff. I think you could do a little cut slide etc. with the harmony vocal on the 5th line but, otherwise, it's a cool thing.

Another good one Brad...
I may be wrong...
But your lyrics & lead vocal are so intimate & strong on this number,
That I believe they would do well without the background harmonies.
Still I enjoyed listening to your rodeo song...
And I agree with Herb...
Your song brought memories of Moe Bandy's rodeo songs.

I like this one a lot - the melancholy lyrics, your vocals, the instruments. Good stuff.

But... there's a glitch at the start of a lot of all your phrases. For example, at 0:30 on "with", 0:53 on "ain't", 0:59 on "maybe", 1:04 "or", 1:27 on "and", etc.

I suspect that you've edited vocal takes together, and because you've cut the "fade in" of the vocal, the vocal volume goes from zero to instantly "on". Or perhaps you're doing punch-ins that start a bit late, so they lose the natural fade in.

In any event, you're probably got an option in your DAW to add a small fade in on the vocal that'll get rid of that problem.

None of which is to diminish the song. You do country really well, and I always enjoy listening to your songs.

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

Nice work smile Loved the flow of the song and thought your vocals were seriously on point. A good write overall - strong progressions and I like how it swings upwards for the chorus. It's nicely catchy without sounding overbearing.

Thanks for sharing!

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.)
