Heck boy, this song sounds like another I already heard before. I can't think of it directly but I remember my Papa playing an old Floyd Cramer LP when I was young with this exact song played on the piano, instrumental only.
You ain't trying to pass this off as if you wrote it are ya?

The center of "Cheshire Bridge Road" is the poem I wrote, a lyrics based song which wouldn't really be the same as an instrumental... I probably wouldn't claim any credit on that, as Geno and Henry wrote the actual instrumental section, arranged for my words.

Here's more from Henry, Geno and me:

Proud to say I've collaborated with the best of the local music scene, and at the top of the list, as anyone who cares to listen knows, is Henry Conley & his Conley Brothers Band. Great music by The Conley Brothers, backing me on one of me poems set to music.

Twilight Girl, written by Will Dockery & Henry Conley, one of what I consider one of my more successful poems, perfectly framed in musical arrangement by what many say are some of the best in the Columbus-Phenix City music scene... The Conley Brothers.

Twilight Girl

Six or six thousand,
we will meet again.
At blazing dusk,
or quiet dawn.
On that shore... again.
This is the wait,
the weight of the world.
Comes down sweet and heavy...
Twilight Girl.

On that quiet morning,
clear, crispy light.
Seeing a movie from a distance,
mourning in front of her flight.
This is the wait,
the weight of the world.
Comes down sweet and heavy,
Twilight Girl.

She offered me her cup,
asked me to fill it up,
I said "Later, babe.
Right now we have to talk
untangle the chakra
that crosses over."

Ghost horses,
from the car ahead,
looks like engine exhaust.
Blink my eyes through bitter tears,
a smile for what we've lost.
This is the wait,
the weight of the world.
Comes down sweet and heavy...
Twilight Girl.

Different road, same name, actually... no strip clubs in my song at all, actually.

Another fine example of The Conley Brothers and their top flight musical backing...

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.

Why put down an artist creative mind? We are all artist to some point, like your artistic talent, useing the word "hogwash". Some can widdle wood, some can paint on canvas, some can dream poetry and then we have your kind. Never take another mans thoughts because when you do your no diffrent then that man so create your own and enjoy all others. When a mans dreams are taking away by another man, we shall call this mans homeland,Russia. A mans dream has braught you everything you know today like cars, microwave ovens, TV, Viagra, airplanes, even satan himself dreams, look at Obama, Clinton, CNN news. MY GOD Delmar, leave the mans dream alone.

Actually, as I recall it, back in the early Eighties, when I lived near there and the time period this song refers to, there wasn't any strip clubs on Cheshire Bridge Road.

There was the original Johnny's Pizza near the start of the road, on the Piedmont Road side, a big, all ages kind of new wave disco named Numbers up the street from there, across the street was the Colanade Diner, great caferteria "Morrison's" type place, a motel next to that.

On down the road was New Baby Products, which is still there, I think, and then the bridge and railroad tracks I used to travel a lot, led to Piedmont Road, then over to Peachtree Road, and on to Howell Mill Road beyond that, an eventually over the Chattahoochee River, headed to Alabama.

Across the bridge on Cheshire Bridge Road was an industrial park of some sort down in a hole on the left side of the road, later became a recording studio down there, if my memory serves me well, possible a famous one, I'll have to verify, as that may be over on Monroe Drive.

After that on the right side of the road was the old Poster Hut, which seemed old even then, a sort of "Head Shop", actually that was what it was, though I hardly ever had time to stop there.

Next up might be where you're thinking, back when I was there the first clud seems to have been a gay clud, "Crazy Ray's" I seem to think it was, that later became... the name escapes me exactly right now offhand, but it was like "Inferno" or "Desecration", with a spooky looking bat logo, this was in later years late 1980s-1990 "Insurrection", no, it'll come to me soon, probably as soon as I post this. Around the corner from there was the club I often visited, which was related to the Witchburner's Bar on Buford Highway, this one went through a few names, for a while was Hot Line, which was all about having phones on the bar and booths, and folks could call each other from across the bar. I met my old friend Tina there, still friends thirty years later.

Then around the bend coming close to Lindberg Drive Cheshire Bridge Road gets "busy", with Waffle House, Dunk N Dine, Happy Herman's Deli, gas stations, and in the back of another building, the infamous Sweet Gum Head, which was a glitter-glam rocker gay bar... Sid Vicious famously hung out there when the Sex Pistols made their Atlanta debut up the road at Broadview Plazz, the great Southeastern Music Hall on Piedmonth Road in, 1977 I think it was.

Then up on Lindberg was varsity Jr., Churches Chicken across the street, the corner where the Flower Girl sold her flowers to the passing traffic, across from there a movie theatre, next to that Farmer John's all-you-can-eat Schmorgasbourd...

Then Cheshire Bridge Road winds on up to Buford Highway, where it changes names, if my memory serves me well.
