Truck Stop Woman / Will Dockery & Henry Conley:

Hello... have the new video on RN now...

Truck Stop Woman / Will Dockery & The Conley Brothers:

http://www.reverbnation.com/artist/video/1173...

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

Try to tell yourself... "It's only a song... only a song..."

And the first rule of poetry and songwriting, as Karla Rogers reminds us:

"Try not to mistake the speaker of the poem with the writer of the poem..."

As Hortaio put it so well, and as ignored by most listeners to songs and readers of poetry:

from the AAPC FAQ:

If someone writes a poem about incest or abuse, should I be worried about them?
A poem is not always about the writer. It may be expressing personal opinion or observation. Do not jump to the conclusion that the writer is experiencing / has experienced the situation that is described in the poem.

Please do try to learn the difference between the narrator and the author.

In your opinion it may not be Country-Western music but in fact and deed, it really is Country music, to the core, lived and learned.

Perhaps you'd care to explain how you came to the opinion that "Truck Stop Woman" is "not country music"?

Be specific... heh.

The song is indeed bad. Country music is known for stirring emotion in its listeners even if that is humor. You music is dead, lifeless drab and stale.
It's not even funny.
Your chord progressions are the same old tired ones with nothing new or exciting, your lyrics are drole and stale, no real meaning or any depth of feeling.
Mundane is the word that suits you best.
Well, anyone who reads here more than a day will know your only purpose here is to follow behind and post megative comments, misrepresentations and personal attacks against me, "Dwayne", or whatever fake name you're hiding behind today.

The fact is, your obsession with anything "Will Dockery" is to the point where you can apparently think of NOTHING else, and so your posts just repeat the same worthless jealous and bitter jeering.

So, my last comment to you applies just as well here, just insert "Truck Stop Woman" for "Hogbottom"... or rather just anything to do with the life and work of "Will Dockery"...

----------

Well I reckon all I can say is sorry you found the many talented bands and performers at Hogbottom to not be your cup of tea.

Better luck next time in finding something you like better than the Hogbottom festival... maybe you just don't enjoy Country music and Classic Rock, I reckon.

If you do find something local you like, why not post something positive here for a change?

And so it goes.

And that's the name of that tune.

I came to that opinion from listening to the song.
First off, I will give you an A for effort, you obviously spent alot of time making the video. The camera work is by far the best thing about this video and its basic at best.
If I only heard the music I would think some 12-13 year old rural Alabama kids got together and started a band and came up with this song by taking everything their young minds knew about country music and putting it all together. For them I would applause, for you as an elderly geezer, not so much.
I think the old advice follows here:
Don't quit your day job.

Well, you're entitled to your opinion of course, no matter how ignorant and wrong it is, as long as you don't think that or try to pass these opinions of yours off as facts.

I tend to take the more educated and insightful critiques of my work more seriously, such as:

"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, Dutch poet

And...

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.-Brian Fowler of the Bibb City Ramblers

And so it goes.

His response to you is to say you are ignorant. Your opinion seem to match most of the ones I have read.

Posted in every case by anonymous trolls with strange agendas.

Folks in real life and who are actually real people have much different reactions to the songs and poetry. For example, as I posted elsewhere...

"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, Dutch poet

Indeed, as Woody Guthrie said:

"I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good. I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose. Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing. Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too slim too ugly or too this or too that. Songs that run you down or poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or hard traveling.... I am out to fight those songs to my very last breath of air and my last drop of blood. I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world and that if it has hit you pretty hard and knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built, I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work..." -Woody Guthrie

So you're some kind of Nazi, my anonymous troll friend?
