Hi all. This song is loosely based on a retired Stockman (Australian Cowboy) friend of mine.
I have written the lyrics to be more in line with the American Cowboy.

All comments welcome.

Hang Up The Bridle

****** Song Summary *************
Title: Hangup The Bridle
File:Hangup The Bridle.SGU
Key=D , Tempo 165, Length (m:s)=2:36



I'll hang up my bridle and Jagerling spurs.
Fold my bandana that used to be hers.
Oil my old saddle that served me a time.
That's all an old cowboy can do.

I'll turn out the gelding to laze by the stream.
In tall fields of clover, get lost in his dreams.
The long horns are calling its time to go home.
That's all an old cowboy can do.

Chorus
So boil up some coffee and cook me some beans.
The sunsets as good as Ive ever seen.
Lay out my bedroll beneath those sweet stars.
That's all an old cowboy can do.


So if you're a cowboy, there's work here to do.
Shine up those spurs and make them look new.
Pick up your saddle and muster the bay.
There's work for a young cowboy to do.


Chorus
So boil up some coffee and cook me some beans.
The sunsets as good as I've ever seen.
Lay out my bedroll beneath those sweet stars.
That's all an old cowboy can do.


Whistle x 3
I'll hang up my bridle and Jagerling spurs.
Fold my bandana that used to be hers.
Oil my old saddle that served me a time.
That's all an old cowboy can do.

That's all an old cowboy can do.
That's all an old cowboy can do.

Well done sir.
I'd much rather hear stockman, tea & damper but I understand the need to address the audience.
Excellent vocal.


Cheers

Good work, you are very versatile. Greta melody and well sung.

(I'd like to have some damper and tea now that Ray has raised it!)

Hi Rob,

This is an excellent production - good vocals, whistling and BV's and the mix is spot on.

Best Regards

Professionally produced and delivered.
Very enjoyable listen that took me back to the old West, or the Outback, depending on your continent of residence.
Great job.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Rob - great song. I always enjoy old cowboy tunes, and love your writing and imagery in this. Every June several friends and old co-workers of mine gather in the back country of the Sierra mountains near the Nevada/California line. They spend days out camping, riding horses and mules, building campfires, telling truth, lies and cowboy poetry. My brother and I and a couple of friends would bring our guitars and sing old cowboy songs from dinner time to the early morning hours. This song really takes me back there 'cause it would fit right in. Thanks for posting this one!

Rob,


This is excellent! You’ve really captured the feel of the old American west . . . really like the write, but the vocals and production elements are equally stellar. Nice touch on the whistling. What a treat it was to listen to. Outstanding!

All my best to you,

Deej

An excellent old style cowboy song.
Great vocal, whistling, and harmonies.
Good mix.

Excellent!

This is delightful, Rob! We grew up on western novels, tv shows, movies and music and you’ve captured that world.

The imagery in the lyric is so good and your vocals are great. Love the ending!

The BiaB guys really nail the mood and that drum track was a very nice surprise.

Enjoyed it!

P.S. We also discovered “dampers” from the comments by Ray and Peter and Janice cooked some today - but we did have coffee rather than tea. wink

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

I only know cowboys from old movies, but your song pretty much fits that image.
Well done.
