“Welcome To The Real World Again” by Bobby Hill (1932-2015)


It is with much love that I share this track from my upcoming album, penned by a dear mentor and friend, Bobby Hill.

June 18th 2015 I was beginning a songwriting workshop with Mary Gauthier in Nashville, Tennessee. During the first few hours of the workshop I got the news from home that Bobby Hill had passed away. When I returned to the room after crying and smoking outside, Mary Gauthier and the rest of our group listened and sang with me on the choruses as I played Bobby Hill’s composition. Written in the 1970’s but never performed or recorded, he had shown and then (in his own words) ‘given to me’ a year earlier, “Welcome To The Real World Again”.

“Too Late to Go Home” Stream the new single by Bobby Dove

I give you “Too Late to Go Home” from my first full-length album that launches in the fall of 2016!!! In the past few years I have embarked on a kind of country-blues pilgrimage, seeking not gods or miracles, but songs and mentors, stories and friends. I have been guided by my inner voice and teachers who have shown up in many forms, encouraging and inspiring me to shed fear and doubt. Heroes often die in the making. I hope this tune speaks to fellow songwriters and anyone who has felt the need to celebrate and mourn their heroes, whether old or young, renowned or underground.

Lyrics and music by Bobby Dove – Socan/Ascap 2016
Recorded at James McKenty’s Studio, Peterborough, On, Canada
