I recently returned home from a 5 month RV trip to the Northeast. As always I managed to

cross paths with some unusual and interesting folks. This year I met a man who was traveling

by himself half the year as he has for the last ten years. His wife refused to travel anymore so

he went by himself. She divorced him and after two years moved back into his house where for

the last 8 years they continue to live for half the year as roommates. He now is in the process

of selling the house, so where they go now is the question. I found it all very confusing and

after he told me this strange story he said “Well there you go”. It rolled around in the back of

the song truck until I got home and then it fell out. This is the end result. Thanks for listening.

There You Go


I never thought that you would wait

I’d head on back then I’d hesitate

away so long left you alone

You’ll be gone well there you go


Sometimes it was so hard to see

That it was something meant to be


I’m finally here gonna make my stand

can’t be anyone but who I am

Takes me a while this you should know

here I am and there you go


Many nights out on the road

Reflecting back on long ago

It may have seemed like I was trapped

I should have cried but I just laughed


Sometimes it’s just so hard to see
,
When it was something meant to be


I’m finally here gonna make my stand

can’t be anyone but who I am

Takes me a while this you should know

here I am and there you go


I’m finally here gonna make my stand

can’t be anyone but who I am

Takes me a while this you should know

here I am and there you go

Hi Tom.

This is superb listening! It's been a long time since I last heard one of your songs and I'm seriously blown away at just how fantastic this sounds. You've manage to use BIAB along with your home studio to perfection.

Hi, Tom. Man, I really like how you get inspiration for you songs. Better than that I REALLY like what you create from those inspirations. So well-written. Excellent lyrics sung so well, and the harmony brings it over the top. Excellent musicans, especially what you add. Here I am, and there you go. Yeah, I'll follow ya anywhere.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Super nice tune and wonderfully performed. Mix is perfect. The vocals jump right out but sound very warm. Cool backstory, too. Great job!

Tommy comes back with a killer song!
This is top shelf all the way.
Outstanding guitar licks.
Great backing tracks and mix.
This is something John Prine would sing and I say that as a big compliment.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

Fabulous song but I REALLY didn't like the reverb/delay/spring slap part of the intro guitar.
It made more sense when the snare joined it but I'm still not a fan.


Cheers

I like it. And I like how you grab things from your journeys and incorporate them into your writing.

My favorite of your is still Waterline. I have to drop in to your site periodically and have a listen to that one.

Hi Tom ...

What a terrific, cool song! I'm on listen #2 as I type this. Love the simplicity of the arrangement. Simplicity isn't all that easy if you're looking for a full sound. Yet you pull it off so perfectly.
welcome back, and thanks for giving us this treat.

Take care,

Alan

Lovely understated lyrics. Wonderful song, Tom.
My only sugg would be to try and downplay the first chorus a tad by leaving out something so as to build to the final choruses.
It may not work though. confused

Interesting story, amazingly good song.

Excellent vocals, guitar, lyrics, mix, melody, and a chorus that nails the part.

Wow. laugh

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

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
