Hi all. This song is based around someone with Alzheimer's.
It is know that music can bring back lost memories for Alzheimer's patients.
As always all comments welcome. Keep safe. Rob4580


My Love My Wife My Friend


Im one day late and one dollar short.
I cant remember the things I ought.
Im last in line I feel a little bit strange.
I cant go home co's I missed the last train.
I struggle a touch to remember her name
I cant believe these things keep happening to me.
-------------------------------------------
When the music plays I see her face again.
My love my wife companion and good friend.
-------------------------------------------
You know your bound to get it right some time.
You know I like to walk in the sun shine

I took on life gave it all I had
Some times good but mostly bad
And regret the times I seemed to make her cry
Got a hot bowl of soup but Im using a fork.
Im all alone with nothing but thoughts.
Still cant believe these things are happening to me


Five-string fiddle plays a unique pizzicato part in this mountain folk Americana RealStyle.
Two identical acoustic guitars play together with the same-but-different feature, strumming
with accents on the offbeat. Acoustic bass alternates between the root and fifth with
attacks on the beat. This song is in the key of C (D)and uses major, minor,
and diminished chords.
These chords change every 1 to 4 beats.

My aunt had dementia, very sad thing indeed! I can't even imagine how frustrating that would be.

Good writing and a good song, well done!

Hey Rob,

Great lyrics about such an important topic. I think no one has ever written a song about Alzheimers until now. We are moved by your beautiful song.

Thank you very much for sharing.

Rob,
A good write, well sung ( I liked the counterpoint chorus vocal) and the old time country style fits.
My mum had dementia and fought it like crazy - a few years ago I wrote a song to honour her struggle; I can relate to your lines!

Cracker songer...
the bridge part
"When the music plays I see her face again.
My love my wife companion and good friend."
is killer.
It's a bit essy in the verses though Rob.


Cheers

Nice song Rob!! Interesting you mentioned about music and the effect it can have on dementia. I saw part of a documentary about Glen Campbell. He did not know where he was, the year, or other ordinary things, but MAN he could still play and sing.....start the program and it came right out! Enjoyed this tune!! Take care. Greg

Rob,

Really strong offering—great mix and vocal work on this. It’s tough subject to write about, you’ve handled it deftly. Enjoyed it immensely!

All my best,

Hi Rob ...

I've looking forward to hearing this for the past few days. Many years ago, I too wrote a song about Alzheimers. So was very interested to hear your musical thoughts. It's much different from my song ... but a stellar song. This very well-written. An uplifting song about a horrible disease. My mother and former mother-in-law where shackled by its clutch. I can relate.

Maybe I'll rerecord mine sometime in the future and post it.

As always, loved your vocal. Great job in all respects. wishing you and yours the very best. be safe ...

Alan

Rob what a lovely song. Very moving and I'm sure we all know somebody who's suffered this rotten illness

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
