about

Written and recorded Feb 15, 2017

I wanted to write a song for St. Elmo since I’ve lived there the past 2.5 years and hadn’t really written about it yet. Many of the lyrics come from stories that Chelsey has relayed to me from the email list serve.

lyrics

Got an incline running through the back yard
See rock city on the back of a postcard
Did you see a suspicious large cat about 10 years ago?
Was it gunshots or fireworks welcome to St. Elmo

Hanging with the Yuppies with 2 kids and a Volvo
Get your bike fixed on 52nd by Jacobo
See something email something right from your cell phone
Eleven stray dogs well, welcome to St Elmo

Living out in the historic district
Ask the list serve if someone found your chickens
There's a pig on the loose down on TN Avenue
You haven't seen her have you?

Does anyone need boxes it's cycling day on Monday
Gino's playing 1885 for brunch on Sunday
Does anybody wanna come and grab this old Nintendo?
When's the corgi parade, welcome to St Elmo


Living out in the historic district
Ask the list serve if someone found your chickens
There's a pig on the loose down on TN Avenue
You haven't seen her have you?
