Way Down Summer Lane

Written  by two locals, Elijah Berry and Howard Gines, in the early 1920s


Now if youíre friends from the country for a day or two,
 Take them round the town all the sights to view.
 First in Cutlerís for a drink youíll call, you show
 Then the fountain and the Old Town Hall.
 Then along Colmore Row, the car you can catch,
 To see the Water Melons on the old Black Patch.
 But thereís one sight you must not miss.
 Before your friends say goodbye, just mention this.

You ought to see the palm trees swaying way down Summer Lane.
 Every Saturday night thereís a jubilation
 Hear the Birdies singing in The Salutation
 Though thereís snow in Snow Hill,
 Youíve cause to take the train.
 To your southern home where the weather is warm
 Itís always summer in Summer Lane

Now you keep on sighing for your Dad and Mam
 Your Mason Dixie Line and your alabam.
 You say youíve heard your Tennesse call,
 Yet you never saw Tennesse at all.
 And your songs from Mandy Land have been done Brown
 So letís have a song about your home town.
each day is a blessing and I bless each day when it comes
