Song Description

A ballad that tells the story of a man with a troubled life who has more or less dropped out of society. The song takes us through his troubled childhood, his time in the army overseas, and an untriumphant return to the States followed by a life of crime.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written specifically for the soundtrack of an up-coming movie that will be released later in 2009 or perhaps 2010.

Broadjam Member Reviews

I liked the mood you created with this. The minor chords and the tremolo guitar effect worked well together. This kind of reminded me of a combination of surfer music with some 1960's spy themes. I thought the melody and chords worked well together and the transitions worked good as well. The musicianship was good and so was the recording quality.

Lyrics

My name is Billy Coy
I live down by the woods
My cabin ain't too big
But still it suits me good
My gun leans on the rail
That runs along my porch
Don't come round here or I'll just shoot you dead.

When I was just a boy
My Pappy beat me good
My Momma wouldn't stop him
Although she knew she should
He put food on the table
But that was all she wrote

She left one spring and I was all alone.

I kept my ass in school
For as long as I could
It kept me far from home
Deep down in them old woods
I lied about my age
Joined the army at sixteen

I jumped a plane and headed cross the sea

We smoked a lot of drugs
And killed a lot of folk
We gambled and we whored
It all seemed like a joke
Shot commies in the head
While lookin' 'em in the eye

It was my job and they deserved to die

I got home to the States
Some work I hoped to find
But nothing came my way
And no one seemed to mind
My mind was wrecked by war
My body wound up tight

I was hungry and I had no place to go

I finally found a man
Whom my services could use.
He sent me round to folks
Who hadn't paid their dues
I broke some legs and arms
I shot some others dead

One day the cops came knockin' at my door

They sent me off to prison
And put me in a cell
They tried to teach me trades
But I didn't learn so well
I did my time in silence
And one day they let me go

I hopped a bus and went back to the woods

So now I sit and rock
On my cabin's porch
Eat critters that I shot
By the light of a torch
My rifle's on my lap
So don't you come round here

I sure as hell don't need you comin' round
