Headed For Hell (Neil Cotton)

His music went nowhere
Life couldn’t get no worse
Then he took the cocktail
Of cocaine, and horse
Riding the needle
Headed for hell

Thought he’d feel better
But was spinning ‘round
He hit rock bottom
Took his young soul down
Riding the needle
Headed for hell

This honky tonk hero
Comatose in bed
A life below zero
Smothered in debt

A lawyer from New York
Gave him a helping hand
9 full days recording
Down he went again
Riding the needle
Headed for hell

He met a good-hearted woman
They married had a son
He quit cold turkey
Turned his life aroun’
No more on the needle
Headed for hell

No more on the needle
Headed for hell

This hony-tonk hero
Once he had a son
Quit cold turkey
Turned his life aroun’

The group sessions we do for soldiers on drugs often include sharing music and poetry that speaks of the suffering from use, and the success found in getting clean and sober. May I have your permission to use this piece of yours with credit to you?

For some unknown reason I am unable to get SoundClick to work. But I really like the hook in your lyrics:

Riding the needle
Headed for hell

I think my Windows registry is screwed up. I've tried many times. I can't play my own SoundClick.

Well, I got it to work. I had ajax.googleapis.com blocked.

Sounds like a good ol' country tune! Might need to turn the vocals up a bit.

Enjoyed the listen!

Neil,

I do like the hook you have here (“Riding the needle . . .”), and even more so the melody and way you phrase it vocally. Lyrically, the transitions hits me a bit too quick, almost seems wanting for a bridge before “He met a good-hearted woman” where there’s some sense of self-realization maybe? Just a thought, and a subjective one at that. So use or lose, as they say.

Enjoyed the listen, Neil—hope all is well in your world!


Regards,

Deej
