Well, that's a new one on me, at least!

Would you care to point out what in the world you mean by that comparison, though?

Here's mine, based on events of my life, so defacto completely original:

Cheshire Bridge Road

Early Sunday morning walking with you on Cheshire Bridge Road
passing sound of radio.
Gee, I think it'd be nice to have a couple of cups of coffee with you
and watch morning come.

Walking on Cheshire Bridge Road early Sunday morning with you
barefoot in the dew.
Sunlight burns away until the fog is gone
and brings in the dawn.

Every time I see your face
it reminds me of music.
Every time I see your face
across that bar.

Early Sunday morning walking with you down Cheshire Bridge Road
passing sound of radio.
Still would like to have a couple of cups of coffee with you
and watch morning come.

-Will Dockery (words)/ Geno Woolfolk & Henry Conley (music)

Where are you getting Bob Seger in there?

I do take the comparison as a high compliment, though!

I guess everyone is saying that girl is a stripper but just reading the words on my own I don't see where they are getting that.
I don't really know what the song is about, its not as clear as "Truck Stop woman" was. You are kind of vague with this song Will.
Yes, this is just a simple love song about a girl I used to know, and miss.

No great mysteries, just a nice song to sing.

Or just too much Rikki Lake and Jerry Springer shows under your belt?

I love the old Bob Seger songs but no, there's not anything in my song that is taken from anything Bob ever wrote or sang.

My poem was based on my own experience, and having lived it, it is obviously a complete original.

The fact remains that no, actually the "Cheshire Bridge Road" lyrics and melody are unlike any other poem or song ever written:

Cheshire Bridge Road

Early Sunday morning walking with you on Cheshire Bridge Road
passing sound of radio.
Gee, I think it'd be nice to have a couple of cups of coffee with you
and watch morning come.

and watch morning come.

-Will Dockery (words)/ Geno Woolfolk & Henry Conley (music)

As you can see, my poem and song is nothing like any other older song, but rather a bit of autobiography about a girl I used to know and love.

Simple as that.

The above poem is based on an event in my life, and is thus completely original material.

That said... For the new readers here who are not accustomed to the false accusations and other lies made by the anonymous and jealous trolls here on the Topix Forums:

As happens over and over here on the Forums, these anonymous, obsessed trolls create these threads apparently from some obsessed agenda they have to attempt to smear my name, libel, and otherwise misrepresent me. And from further reading, it appears to be a sort of Topix.com phenomenon that some don't seem to be able to deal with as well as I have.

For example:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/20/us/small-to...

"...a social media Web site called Topix, where they write and read startlingly negative posts, all cloaked in anonymity, about one another. And in Dee’s Place, people are not happy... called Topix a 'cesspool of character assassination.'[...] In rural America, older, poorer remote population lagged the rest of the country in embracing the Internet, the growing use of social media is raising familiar concerns about bullying and privacy... hubs of unsubstantiated gossip, stirring widespread resentment in communities where ties run deep, memories run long and anonymity is a novel concept.'Something about rural culture seems to make people want to have conversations in public,' Topix, a site lightly trafficked in cities, enjoys a dedicated and growing following across the Ozarks, Appalachia and much of the rural South, establishing an unexpected niche in communities of a few hundred or few thousand people..."

And, of course, there's a difference between free speech and libel. The posts made here and elsewhere on Topix.com by the trolls you asked about generally tend to fall into the latter category.

Okay, just caught this...

Thanks for being honest and admitting that "Cheshire Bridge Road" is an original poem of mine.

Since it was based on real events in my life, and a real girl in Atlanta who I once loved, it can't help but be original.

And BTW, she wasn't a stripper, she worked on the corner of Lindberg Road and Cheshire Bridge Road in 1980-82 or so as a flower girl, selling flowers to motorists for the Sunshine Flower Company, which I also worked for during the Summer of 1982.

Hows that for some interesting trivia?

But that wouldn't work at all since my poem wasn't written for that melody and doesn't fit with either the words or thoughts of that song.

Not only is the melody of "Cheshire Bridge Road" significantly different from any other song, and original, but the ideas, events and sentiments conveyed in the poem are completely different and original from any other song ever written... since, after all, the poem is based on events from my own life and about a person I used to know.

The other song the lying troll mentions has nothing to do with my poem, the song, or really the story I'm telling in mine. Here's mine again, and as can be seen, even the meter and beat of the piece is different from the other older song mentioned:

Sorry Will, I don't like this song, it's even worse than Truck Stop Woman (Didn't think that was possible)
Well no reason to be sorry, Commando, if you don't like it, you don't like it, all anyone can expect is for you to give your honest opinion.

It was almost a given that if you don't like "Truck Stop Woman" you may just not like much of anything I do, and there's not much I can say or do about that except I hope you'll find something by someone else you do like in the future and spend your time promoting that rather than wasting all this time trying to bash me over and over.

Either way, of course, I won't be going anywhere, and will continue to post more of my work that you can check out or not, just be aware that you probably won't like it since you don't seem to care for "Will Dockery" music. Kapesh?

I do take exception to, and have to rebuke, the false statement you'r repeating that this new poem/song is anything but an original, as I just finished pointing out to The Panther:

That wouldn't work at all since my poem wasn't written for that melody and doesn't fit with either the words or thoughts of that song.

While I consider it praise of the highest order to be compared to Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band, my poem is probably closer in style to his classic "Knight Moves" rathet than "Down On Main Street".

I really like his oldest work, such as "Persecution Smith", "Katmandu" and "That Old Time Rock-N-Roll".

Every town has a Cheshire Bridge Road. In every State across the Country. This is why I call myself, theycallmepunch (they call me punch). The reason, I punch ho's, pimps, johns, tricks, hookers, thugs, gang bangers, hobo's, etc etc etc. Anyone that I feel needs a good ole American "Punch", in the face, shoulder, stomach, groin, etc etc etc. Any body part I decide at that moment. Except midgets, dwarfs, little people or whatever they call themselves now-a-days. These little folks get a double handed smack. the reason for the double hand smack is because I picked up a hooker who had a lexbo ho who called the pimp who paid a john to do a trick with a thug who was a gang banger in front of a hobo who was a midget that punched me in the face then stomach then shoulder then groin. Ha Haa Haaa.
