The end of the road

Description
A bluesy tune coupled with some blue lyrics.

I recorded this song a year ago, and had forgotten about it. I discovered it by chance and though I'd share it here, as I haven't been too active around these parts lately.

I remember making this because I needed a bluesy tune to add to my bands repertoir.

The art piece is something I painted many years ago, and could perhaps suit the mood of the song.

Lyrics
Too many times babe,
too many times I’m stuck alone
I’m sick and tired of waiting for you
You’re running out with him again
When you come home this time
You’ll find I’ve left and won’t be back no more

Well I discovered what your game is
It’s not including me
You take all my money
but leave me out in the cold
So now that I have found out
what you do at night
Well I hope you’ll find your home babe,
‘cause it won’t be me no more

It’s too late to beg for pardon
my train did leave tonight
it’s too late to beg for mercy
I won’t be home tonight
If you won’t have my honey
I’ll buzz for someone else
I hope you find your peace babe,
‘cause peace from me you’ll have

Too many times babe
this has to be the end
Too many tries,
this leads to nowhere good
You must have seen it coming
There’s no more to be said
This is the very end
the end of the road

Why you been hiding this Gem Thor? Man oh Man this is sweet. Perfect perfect - wurlitzer/rhodes sound. Your voice sounds terrific as well. I'd rave on but I'm sneaking a listen at a customer :-) They like it as well!

That guitar
When I listen to this I see the vid you did for Safe Hands and it makes it all the better - I really enjoy your aggressive style and "soul" on this (as with all your playing). Of course you know that I'm a sucker for this style of music - "soul/blues" perhaps?
Very enjoyable post.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Outstanding!
A superb set of sounds, all in harmony and setting a soulful bluesy mood, with that guitar singing of a real, palpable hurt. Nice.

!!!!!!
intro alone was worth the price of admission...

wow - is this mix full! like BURSTING FULL of good sounds.
cool write, and an excellent tortured lover vocal - (poor boy!)

loved all the spots for solos - keys are OOOOOO.
bass is beyond beautiful - and the lead guitar work shines.
percussion is alive and very well - nice job, drummer.
cool key change - just a swell arrangement that one can really sink an ear into. IT'S A WINNER! Anne

I dig the blues club vibe, live drivin' and sweet guitar lines. And the painting is way cool. Love the blues in that, too.

It does have that hint of BB King, doesn't it?
I like the deep tone on the bass, which on my headphones is a nice contrast to the cymbal splashes and snare hits...Neat organ tones, and a really good guitar tone to these ears...

A hint of B.B. King is very close to what I had in mind when I made this one. I find his minor blues progressions tasty and also the great grooves he usually has in his songs. Nice to hear that sensed that influence.

Thanks for your kind comments on the mix and guitar tone Ed:-)
