Gone Too Far

There's a wind from Russia
blowing over Alaska way.
Old man in the big house
won't have it any other way.
He say
"Da da da,
they've gone too far..."
People are worried---
wondering where they'll hide.
Dark forces at work.
illuminating the night.

The ladies dance the Maypole
across the divide.
Banks are a'falling
while I stand in line.
He say
"Da da da,
they've gone too far..."
People at the shelter---
they're working real hard.
Time waits for no man
but it stands stock still for me.
Dark forces at work
in levels of history.

Big bear come a'stomping
and he's coming for you.
He's on the phone with the Devil
and he wants what's due.
He say
"Da da da,
they've gone too far..."
People are worried---
wondering where they'll hide.
Dark forces at work.
across the divide.

Yeah that one sucks too Will.
Your band should fire you for all of the bad publicity you caused them.
Columbus Ga should banish from it's city limits.
Phenix City should post a watch in case of you.
The Del Ranch should use your head for a toilet brush.

You hear that boys and girls?
He writes a bunch of bad lyrics and suddenly, they are "his" songs. When you come up with a good riff it will become a part of "his" song. A good chorus.. "His" song. A nice arrangement to..."his" song.
If you ever make any money, I reckon that will be "his" also.
Sounds like a great deal for "him".

Well these particular songs would not have been written without the poems I wrote and adapted to melodies.

I know you're not a writer, "Hank", but I wouldn't have expected you to be /that/ clueless... oh wait...

It /was/ you who showed a complete lack of understanding of the songwriting process earlier tonight with your inept and clueless notions about the basis of the Country music song "Truck Stop Woman", also, which I'll repost here for example purposes.

An example of what a silly, literal minded (Republican?) you can be, "Hank":

First off, you make the biggest mistake as a reader of poetry, or song, or any creative work can make, "Hank", but that's acceprable because you're obviously just a bitter low-level troll, "jealous of his betters", as Dennis M. Hammes would nail you as.

You make the mistake my friend, the poet Karla Rogers often has pointed out to newbies and general hecklers over the years:

"Do not mistake the speaker in the poem for the writer in the poem."

In other words I was telling a story, and must have done it well, with the obsessive level you've fixated on it, and thanks again for all the free publicity... you seem incapable of doing otherwise, though.

Heh.

Truck Stop Woman / Will Dockery & Henry Conley, the Jack Snipe reboot:

http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_127...

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 Phenix 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.

Words: Will Dockery
Music: Henry F. Conley

Well Dave, as you know, I would be plugging Gary Johnson here, who I was under the impression was on the ballot in all 50 states. Turns out Romney's crooks are so afraid of him, though, that they're working the keep him off the ballots in November. As I wrote elsewhere, earlier:
Hank wrote:
<snip for focus>

Sam Webb discussed the need for a third party consisting of the so-called working class and labor as well as “racially and nationally oppressed people, women, youth, immigrants, seniors, gay and straight.”

Webb, however, recognized that such a party is not likely to emerge by next year.

“Millions who have to be at the core of this party still operate under the umbrella of the Democratic Party, albeit increasingly in an independent fashion,” he noted.

Webb said that for communists there are major differences between Democrats and Republicans. He urged his supporters to continue to back the Democrats.
I would direct Webb to Gary Johnson, the legitimate Third Paty candidate for President in 2012, and the interesting Gary Johnson write-up on how voting for Gary Johnson in November is a "no brainer":

http://countrythinker.com/home/politics/votin...

"...Mitt Rom­ney did not run for reelec­tion [...] his polling num­bers were so bad he knew he didn’t have a chance at win­ning. Rom­ney... claims that he accom­plished most of the things he wanted to accom­plish and he didn’t want to become a career politi­cian."

"...Barack Obama [...] is respon­si­ble for what econ­o­mist Edward Lazear has iden­ti­fied as the worst eco­nomic recov­ery in his­tory. He is respon­si­ble for the largest bud­get deficits in human his­tory, and his Trea­sury Sec­re­tary has acknowl­edged that Team Obama has no plan what­so­ever as to how to deal with the prob­lem."

"...Mean­while, Gov­er­nor Gary John­son had two extremely suc­cess­ful terms as New Mexico’s chief exec­u­tive. He was reelected in a Democrat-dominated state even though he was rated the most fis­cally con­ser­v­a­tive Gov­er­nor at the time [...] The two major par­ties are wrong. You don’t have to pick between fail­ures. You can choose suc­cess instead, and in this case his name is Gary Johnson."

Unfortunately, the dirty dealers in the Republican party are working to keep Gary Johnson off the ballot in some states, and as it stand now GJ's only on the ballot in 43 states:

http://www.garyjohnson2012.com/examiner-gary-...

Which again leaves many of us in the frustrating position of picking the "lesser" of two evils. Problem with that is that either one you pick you're still voting for evil.

“The larger issue is the guerrilla ballot access war being waged nationwide by the Republican Party on behalf of Mitt Romney. They clearly do not want voters to have the option of voting for Gov. Johnson in key states, and are frantically mounting challenges wherever they can in those states, such as Michigan, Pennsylvania and Iowa. They tried in both Ohio and Virginia, and failed.

“With their millions of dollars and endless supply of lawyers, Romney and the Republicans are forcing our campaign and our volunteers to protect and defend the simple democratic opportunity for voters in these states to support the candidate of their choice.

“Anyone who does not see a pattern here, given their serial ballot challenges and their treatment of Rep. Ron Paul at the convention in Tampa, is simply not looking. The national Republican Party and their candidate for President don’t want voters to have the opportunity to cast a vote for real liberty.”

Apologies for the double post, at first it looked like Topix had lost the first attempt, and I even had to re-write it since I hadn't saved it.

Well, "Hank", my bitterly jealous and anonymous friend, you're entitled to your opinion right or wrong, and even though yours is in a distinct minority among more astute and intelligent and creatitive thinkers and listeners than sluggards of your ilk:

"Will Dockery's voice is unique and fantastic to me in a Spacerock context, some ambient type Spacerock is a riff that builds and changes sometime ever so slightly and is hypnotic. Psychedelic/Spacerock is not for everyone, Will always picks up o...n the flow of the song and slowly changes with us and spews a poetic beat vibe to it. The T.O.T.M.(Theatre Of The Mind) album will be a acquired taste, kinda like an Alien stew with wierd stuff in it and unrecognizable shapes and textures. Or like a Alien child coming out of a human and the suprised looks on the family and medical staff as they realize that this aint no ordinary baby. Basically this album is for the Lava lamp and the Colorwheels."
- Brian Fowler, T.O.T.M.(Theatre Of The Mind}

"…The Shadowville All-Stars and their insane menagerie of pickers, strummers, drummers, bangers, trumpeters, trombonists, chanters, singers, freaks, faux-Indian dancers [...] colorful costumed cacophony of chaos that rolled from the [...] stage out to the performance area and up the hill to the kitchen and on out over the pond before it dissipated into the ether…”-Katy Clyde, ChattyHoochee Mama (Apr 26, 2010)

"In my opinion Will Dockery is easily one of the most authentic American poets around. A real coffeehouse poet who is not scared of mingling some real American elements such as country music into his poetry." -M.H.Benders
- Martijn Benders, Kannibaal.nl

"...eclectic, imagery-laden, neo-beatific poems. Chain-smoking, spontaneously gesturing towards make-believe objects and addressing imaginary characters [...] gravel-throated limp, a rolling, bluesy romp in the swamp [...] pool halls, bridges, tragedies, lost love, relationships. "
- Larry Caddell, Columbus Community News (Jul 29, 2006)

Glad to clear up the misrepresentations and your confusions, Tory, now have a nice day.

Hank, Tory, Trent, Beezlebubbah, et al I know you're all just 3-4 of the same folks posting anonymously while hiding behind the fake names... why not have some guts and pick a name and stick with it?

At least the goofy cretins Show Me and Chuckie went to the trouble to register and get at least a glimmering of credibility...

Just sayin'.

No, "Hank", as far as collaboration goes, I always insist on credit where credit is due, and I'll give you an example here, take "Wobble" written by me, Will Dockery and guitarist Henry Conley.

Both of us are listed with the copy on file at the Library of Congress office of Copyrights:

"Wobble" written by Will Dockery & Henry Conley, from the CD Shadowville Speedway.© 2009 Library of Congress Registration Number / Date: PAu003501816 / 2008-09-23

And of course on that fine day we make any substantial $$$ off the song, we'll both cut that bounty right down the middle... heh.

http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_129...

Wobble

Black soul
in a haunted swirl.
Crisp snap
on the edge of my world.
Dark night
without clouds.
Swift train
clacking loud.
A black veil for you
A black veil for you
A black veil for you
my aim was true.
Spiral for me baby
seems I'll take the chance
uncharted cosmic wobble
to dance an eternal dance...
Let the angels dance
let the angels dance
let the angels dance
let the young girls dance.
Doomed rocket
out of fuel.
Skittered sidewise
with a twist of blue.
I watched it fall
and I thought of you.
Falling just for you
falling just for you
falling just for you
and you know who.
You shine like stardust, baby
I'm in your thrall, a trance.
A pinprick in a photograph
to dance the eternal dance.
Let the dibbuks dance
let the dibbuks dance
let the dibbuks dance
let the young girls dance.

Words: Will Dockery
Music: Henry F. Conley
