Hi All,

Here's something called City Girl.

Easy now

I’m over my head
In this subway car
I’m gasping for breath
I think I’m in too far

So let me tell you girl
Something I can’t forget
I guess I missed you more
Like I just said
I miss that girl
Girl in the city
Yeah I miss that girl
Girl in the city

I’m running the street
In worn out shoes
I’m wearing out feet
I got nothing to lose

So let me tell you girl
Something I can’t forget
I guess I missed you more
Like I just said
I miss that girl
Girl in the city
Miss that girl
Girl in the city

I’m dazed and bruised
In a world of hurt
I’m looking for truth
I'm on high alert

So let me tell you girl
Something I can’t forget
I guess I missed you more
Like I just said
I miss that girl
Girl in the city
Miss that girl
Girl in the city

So let me tell you girl
Something I can’t forget
I guess I missed you more
Like I just said
I miss that girl
Girl in the city
Yeah I miss that girl
Girl in the city

Hi Mr. Dean.

I like these laid back styles. Very Dylanesque.
I wrote one called City Girl too a few years back.
Good stuff.

Man I can't get enough of your vocals! So expressive.

"I’m running the street
In worn out shoes
I’m wearing out feet
I got nothing to lose"

Nice!

Sounds great, Bob, I'm a fan.

Well, talk about engaging songs... Right after the "Easy now" I was singing along with you as if I knew the song all my life. Really catchy hook and melody. Great choice of band and style, and the perfect production, Bob. Great morning lift.

They always say the greats have an identifiable tone. You so do. Your song writing and production obviously well crafted; but it wouldn't this song without your voice. VERY cool!

Bob, outstanding vocal and lyrics! Loved it. Super choice in instrumentation and mix also.

IMHO this is your best to date.

Another great one, Bob. Like others have said, your songs have an instantly recognisable sound which really appeals to me. And I'm always a sucker for songs of longing and regret.
Regards,
Leon

Nice construction and arrangement.
Your very distinctive vocal style holds court as always.
Still, a little de-essing wouldn't go astray.

"I’m dazed and bruised
In a world of hurt
I’m looking for truth
I'm on high alert"

Most memorable.

You and Lucinda need to hook up for a live stream. We'd pay!

Even sans baritone guitar we loved the band smile

Great, as Janice said, "gritty and soulful" vocal.

Excellent!
