So, here it is:

Lyrics:

You’re Like Barbed Wire Baby, When You Fence Me In

Just Like Barbed Wire Baby, The Way You Fence Me In

Someday I’m Gonna Break Out And I’ll Be Free Again.....Free Again



You Got The Gates Closed On Me, And Boundary Well Defined

Got The Locks Closed Tight, And You’re Mess’n With My Mind

Like Barbed Wire Baby, Got All Entwined,…....All Entwined



Every Time I Step Out, You Pull Me Right Back In

Like Barbed Wire Baby, You're Ripp’n Up My Skin

I’m All Scratched Up, Don’t Ask Me Where I’ve Been,…...Where I’ve Been

Ha...Take It Away Boys



~~ Gutar Solo~~



Got My Clothes All Tore Up, And I’m Bleed’n Like A Pig

Barbed Wire Cut Me, Got Me Feel’n Mighty Sick

Well It's Time For Me To Bust Out, Get Runn’n Real Quick, ….....Get Runn’n Real Quick



You’re Like Barbed Wire Baby, When You Fence Me In

Just Like Barbed Wire Baby, The Way You Fence Me In

I’m Gonna Break Out, I’ll Be Free Again.....Free Again

Whoo Ha, Free Again, Ye Ha, Free Again

This is a great write. Love the intro.
Really nice production.
Reminds me of some early Elvis stuff with a touch of Johnny cash.
Love it.

Thanks for listening.
After I recorded and got close to the final mix, I thought it reminded me of somebody, IO just can't put my finger on who that is.
Elvis and Johnny Cash is a good place to start my search.

Great song. Reminded me of a woman (Barbara) years ago, who was always ripping into her colleagues. It earned her the nickname Barb Dwyer.

Nice bluesy old time piece. The guitars sound nice and twangy.
The vocal has a good live feel to it.

Well produced.

Nice, old school feel to this, late 50's, early 60s vibe.
Especially the sound you have dialed in on the guitars. Slap back delay? And tons of reverb. Great sound in my book.

Good stuff, Captain, I like your style.

moto,

A good Blues write. And a classic sound. A sound that never goes out of style.

Good guitar work. Good vocals. Well mixed - a tight sound with a "live" element. Nice!

An enjoyable listen.

Thanks Peter,
I think this one deserved a little twang.

Hi Captain,

That's a groovy song (old word I used years ago)
But the sphere your song breaths is like those years.
The guitars gave me that familiair feeling between one the one hand the Shadows and on the other hand J.J Gale
A bit uncomparable, but you manageged to do that to me! But I think your voice helped to get mr Gale here.
and in a way the song is also 'understated' if that's the proper word. Just like the songs from Floyd and Peter and Leon.
Maybe it is because we get enough of the lockdown by now.

I liked it much, captain!
Hans

Just make it rusty barbed wire for the total effect. Nasty stuff.... BUT.... the song is cool.

I could hear Johnny Cash singing that back in the day.

I Like it.

Very cool intro. Barb Wired. I was thinking Pamela Anderson maybe :-)... Very cool vocal and backtrack. Drums were cool and a little Hank Marvin guitar. Well done

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

Howdy Cap'n ...

I read the early Elvis and Johnny Cash analogies. Can't disagree with either of those. But my first thought was Carl Perkins, circa 1958. The guitar work is perfect for the genre and era. Loved all the "fenced in" references, strongly supporting the title.
Isn't it interesting how some small event can trigger such a great song?! Nice ... really nice! Take care.

Alan

Same here! I saw the thread title and went and got the URL for this photo before I listened to the song (really good listen!) and read the thread.

Thank you so much Hans,
I thought it had a familiar sound....maybe you're right JJ Cale.
I always appreciate your comments
