Your fans know they are of no significance what so ever. They can't write good poems either. Plus they aren't a downloadable app and they got zero you tube famous singing with a band like your famous all stars. They are jjjealous. Jealous they is. Jealous they are! Plus no Flower Child gives them kudos every day neither.
Your National Lampoom parody/satire style does ring of truths... heh.

Truck Stop Woman

Pulled into Auburn, Alabama,
it was raining of course.
All I seemed to contemplate besides the weather
what a shame to be divorced.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen minutes of eternal love
then she's back out of sight.

Rode past Buena Vista,
there was sand in the sky.
Plastic Jesus started trembling
then I seen her with my eyes.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
She'll light and warm my dreams tonight
Fifteen dollars worth of true love
man that girl was out of sight.

Something about her was familiar
there was smoke in her eyes.

Back outside of Phoenix City,
pimps and their ilk all around.
Then it turned negative
when I seen her bouncing around.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen minutes of eternal love
then she's back out of sight.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
she'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen dollars worth of true love
man that girl was out of sight.
She's right back out of sight.

No, the Columbus-Phenix City music scene is not about one person or group, but many talented singer-songwriters of multiple genres, as this site with over 600 videos of the local Columbus-Phenix City talent proves.

And for those unfamilar with the music scene in Columbus-Phenix City then and now, the scene is also thriving with talent of every variety:

http://www.youtube.com/user/RusticViewer07/vi...

These videos can be viewed by Phenix City residents on East Alabama Cable-TV channel 7 throughout the days and nights.

The readers ask. Why do you love the song TRUCK STOP WOMAN. You love presenting it for people to read and having people view the link to watch you sing it. A song that glorifies the desire to abuse and destroy the virtue of a woman. The song is the glorification of the abuse of a woman. And no this is not a misrepresentation or a lie. No falsehood. The song clearly is the description of the abuse of a woman.
I don't know you, or this other obsesso, and in fact you are both anonymous and unregistered trolls, obviously, but this thread is about the local music scene so links to their songs is on topic and appropriate.

For example, here's a song I collaborated with The Conley Brothers on, and wish I'd been there to sing it for ya'll Saturday night... maybe next time.

Special kudos to Riley Yielding for playing the trumpet on this one, and Doug Conley for his splendid clarinet.

Shadowville Speedway

In a taxi watching a sporting house
Beside a Linwood vacant lot
Silverdollar moon portspotting
Constellation like a sailor's knot.
The sky was black, ink and glitter in the night
Train whine saxophone out beyond the light.
I'm in love with a ghost blue turns to grey
Put a pyramid on my head to take my pain away.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.
Brown Reculse magic drifting around the shed
Someone has it in for me I must not lose my head
Moving with the speedo life several with me left behind
Burned too many bridges defragmented my time.
Somewhere in time I've seen all this before
In a magazine or a dream of a distant war.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street.
Manifested destiny a manifesto and a part
All the actors still agree that ever had a heart.
Hazel knew the karma, she kept it in a bottle
Black tooth mojo marked index cards
Bundles over the side of Dillingham Bridge
Splashing as ripples reflect from the stars.
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Riding slow down a one way street
Shadowville, Shadowville Speedway
Don't look back, don't admit defeat.

Anyone can watch the videos... and thanks to you for having a listen and giving your opinion... no, the Columbus-Phenix City music scene isn't perfect, but there's definitely some hard working talent on these streets of Shadowville.

For another example, here's this particularly strong set from most of the local performers, including me on a couple of the songs, the tribute show to our friend Clyde Baker, a singer-songwriter who suddenly passed away in April:

http://youtu.be/HON4gaacGsU

"Seems To Be No Time", written by Basil Fitzpatrick originally sang by Clyde Baker, vocal interpretation by Will Dockery / "Bang A Gong" written by Marc Bolan, vocal by Will Dockery / "Nothing & Nothing" written by Clyde Baker, vocal Basil Fitzpatrick / "Tonight Is Mine" written by Clyde Baker, Vocal by Derundo Jenkins / "White Rabbit" written by Grace Slick, vocal by Gini Davidson / "Gloria" written by Van Morrison, vocal by Dan Davidson.

Anyone who can't find music they can enjoy in this town simply isn't trying to or doesn't want to, for whatever agenda.

He says Shadowville is a place that exists only in his mind.
The concept is a bit more complicated than that, probably a bit more than you're up to comprehend.

What an odd yet interesting question... you don't write songs or poetry, do you?

I feel that "Truck Stop Woman" is a good song, so I reckon that;s why I perform it.

Does that help with your confusion?

Yesm Clyde passed away last year.
