Hi All,

Here's another new one. This is called Tannersville.

She said she’s not unhappy
Just really likes the sad songs
It helps her think about things
All things both right and wrong

He says she’s always in his head
Like Patti Smith’s Book Of Days
He thinks about her way too much
And it leaves him in a haze

And they park down off the rail trail
And he moves away the garbage
And he spreads out his old jacket
And the wind comes down the mountain

He says baby I'm not joking
I'd be gone if I didn't meet you
There's a few things here in Tannersville
I find it hard to go back to

She grew up on the mountain
She's never really been anywhere
But the tourists come from far away
And they end up being everywhere

And they park down off the rail trail
And he moves away the garbage
And he spreads out his old jacket
And the wind comes down the mountain

She still loves to go out dancing
She’s got a touch of silver gray
Her first husband worked the railroad
And she’s trying to find her way

The sun was always a good sign
And that seemed like a reason
To spend some time in Kaaterskill Falls
Where they welcomed the new season

And they park down off the rail trail
And he moves away the garbage
And he spreads out his old jacket
And the wind comes down the mountain
And they park down off the rail trail
And he moves away the garbage
And he spreads out his old jacket

BIAB Tracks:
2474: Bass, Acoustic, Held Ev 085

As always - thanks for listening!

Bob, wow, gorgeous song! Very evocative, and your fabulous vocals and sparse arrangement serve the song perfectly. Like where you placed the harmony lines on the chorus but could just barely hear them. Another great one...you keep raising your own bar. Not easy to do...

Those lyrics that start the story are so captivating --grabs me much more than, "They call me Ishmael." I spent so much time in and around Tannersville --(born in East Burg). Jammed with G(eorge) Smith when he was 17.

You consistently write what I'd call my favorite cut on the album. Lyrics are always far better than anything else out there, and your vocal delivery matches them like no one else can. Terrific and inspiring.


Enjoy whatever happens!

At first I thought of Bob Dylan. Honestly, I'm not a fan of the Folk singer style, it's not my culture. But it's really good and the emotion comes through. The intro and the guitar are superb, the broken voice goes very well with it. Bravo Superb song and interpretation.

Hi Bob.
I like how in the USA a place name can be used in a meaningful way.
It doesn't often work with UK place names.
I loved your track and lyric.

Two lines bothered me though:
"Her first husband worked the railroad
And she’s trying to find her way".
If you'd written "Her husband died working the railroad",
I think the lines would make more sense.
Just my opinion and I hope you don't mind me mentioning it.

"And they park down off the rail trail

Exquisite.

Love It.

The new? microphone adds a low fi vintage quality to your excellent vocal. The stripped down unplugged band is perfect for your poetic storyboard lyric. Americana at it's best, Tom

This is great storytelling, and the sparse instrumentation does exactly what it's supposed to: It never gets in the way of your vocals.
I really LOVE how you switch between sung and spoken words at times.
Works perfectly!

Bob,
Another very fine offering from a super talented folk/rock singer songwriter! You did a wonderful job on the vocals here and your lyrical content is up there with your usual very high standards!
Take care, TB

Marty,

Thanks so much - I always appreciate your kind reviews. BTW, this is Tannersville, NY, but I know Tannersville, PA very well. I've spent a lot of time there over the years.

Thank you again.

Hi, Bob.

There's the old saying about writing what you know, and if seems you really know New York. smile

I like the understated tone you use here - small things and details - that fits nicely with the simple arrangement.

Nice work! smile

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

Bob, you are one fantastic story teller.
I got a Bob Dylan vibe on this one and I mean that as a huge compliment.
Outstanding vocal and lyrics, backed by the perfect band, and mixed to perfection.
This is your best to date IMHO.
