Description
This song means a lot to me personally but I think it will reach a lot of people. One of the reasons I like this song is that Stevel has graced it with some sterling electric guitar. Steve has the ability to play a lot of guitar with just the right amount of notes. He is also a great songwriter and singer, check out his catalog and you won't be disappointed.

Lyrics
I don't have the words to tell you who I am
I don't have the time to sit and think of you
You broke all the rules and now you have to pay, sitting all alone every day

I don't want the things that you just had to have
And I don't want a thing that you don't want to give
You broke all the rules and now you have to pay, sitting all alone every day

And I hear a voice and it's calling
Telling me what I don't want to know
We hold our fate inside our own hands
And every choice defines who we are

cowboy music!
Thanks so much for the comments!! New age cowboy, hey - you might be on
to something. I've always been fascinated by the line in the classic western
song Tumblin Tumbleweeds where the cowboy sees these bushes being
blown by the wind and dust and somehow conjures up that they are "pledging
their love to the ground." Either they were smoking something around that
campfire or the wide open land breeds a sort of mysticism about nature
which they expressed in their songs.

Beautiful heartache
I am not sure if I have heard a lovlier bronco tune than this one, Tom. Or a sadder one. Your vocal on this is also the best yet, in my opinion. Excellent guitar from steve. Excellent harp. I have no choice but to give this one 10s. Excellent!

Beautiful heartache
Thanks Tom! It is a sad song but it also has a lot of hope in it because we are
in control of our own fate and can change what we don't like about our lives.
It is sad when people go their own ways but not if that is the best way for
each of those people to go. Oops, okay, writer of song go back and read first
verse. I don't have the words to say what this song is about either. But it does
have a nice chord structure and melody.

very enjoyable to hear but sad . .
Like that picking. Ya, agree with Tom in that this is a very
fun to hear tune.
Nice guitar solos there. Like that electric almost ghostriders
feel.

Nice going Stevel and Bronco!

very enjoyable to hear but sad . .
Thanks Bill,

I love the fingerpicking/electric guitar combo also. Originally I had put a
dobro solo on this one but it was harsh sounding, unmelodic and generally
not working. I knew stevel had a good feel for melodic electric runs and as it
turns out I was very right. He did a great job!

Lovely song indeed
Thanks to you Steve for giving it that perfect solo that put the song over into
the cool category! Your playing reminds me a lot of Mark Knopfler from Dire
Straits. Also a guy from the seventies that is not well known, Amos Garrett
who did the solo on Midnight At the Oasis. Beautiful job - thanks again.

Very nice...
from the lyrics, the singing, to the playing--the addition
of Steve's guitar is perfect.
One of those lovely, honest, non-flashy sort of songs that
makes you listen carefully...and makes you glad that you
did.

unusual, unexpected and COOL
Very pleasant combination of sounds on this track! The
guitar and harmonica weave in and out of the texture
seamlessly, and complement your excellent vocals very
well.

Your voice, and this recording, have a real immediacy and
intimate quality, as though we are all sitting 'round the
campfire listening to this song.

Your emotion shines through very well on these sad lyrics
-- just the right amount.

The chord progression takes some rather unexpected
twists and turns, rather unusual. NICE! The same goes for
the vocal melody, which moves around a fairly wide range
of notes, adding interest.

The overall quality of songs on MacJams this week is
particularly high, and this song is right up there.

Great job!

unusual, unexpected and COOL
Thank you for this well thought out review. I think this is the first time you
have reviewed one of my songs and it is certainly the most thourgh and best I
have ever received. Perhaps I have painted my masterpiece here? , as mr.
dylan would say. Again, thanks so much for a great review!

Lovely
Very sweet song. Always had a thing for harmonicas.
Excellent guitar playing as well - very emotional.
Great job.

Thanks Einarus. Glad you liked the harmonica. I tried to just play enough to
give some color to the song but not overwhelm it which is easy to do with a
harmonica.

Enjoyed the Collaboration!!
Bronco(and stevel)

Really enjoyed the lyrics , very heavy stuff,

The guitar playing (both of you) was extremly well done

The Martin sounds so nice and the Strat weaving in and

and out and around tops the song off. Without the
harmonica it would not be you, sonded great as always

one question on tha Strat(model/year) ,and was it a direct
record or what

brand/model amp was used?

Thanks for the chance to listen

I'm not even done...
...listening... and this is so neat...

Great lyric, great melody. Love that mournful harmonica.

And stevel's playing, that Fender "pop" and the reverb, fit
right into the feel of the tune...

Despite the distance, I imagine you guys playing this one to
the stars, out on the porch...

Beeeeautiful song....
A gorgeous piece of songwriting; really lovely shapes in
the melody. And stevel's guitar is a perfect smooth
contrast to the lovely timbre of your careworn voice. One
fine piece of work.

Beeeeautiful song....
Thanks mando/William! As you know the thing I would like to be remembered
for is as a songwriter more than a performer and I am proud of this song. The
chord progression and melody were probably the best I've done on the pretty
side of my songwriting.

melancholy and moody
This is great work, Bronco. Nicely textured, careworn
vocals fit perfectly with the lyrics, and that cool western
feel added an interesting dimension. I loved your
harmonica work in this one -- very subtle and perfect
placement. The guitar work was stellar as well. A beautiful
song, my friend.

I do know what I like when I hear it.
I don't know anything about this style of music . but I do
know what I like when I hear it. I like your singing's lack of
stylistic affectation. The singing I 'm assuming evolving
from your everyday speaking voice . And I know it takes
good singing and songwriting to do this . I can't comment
on the guitar technically, but it's also very enjoyable , and
I think integral to the success of this piece. nice one.
