Mayfield’s New Theme Song – Lyrics Included : Your Town Thursday
Nice to get so much input from contributors, and this was no exception. The Mayfield folks came through again, and it actually caused a major dilemma - how am I supposed to get all of this into one song? Well, I gave it the old college try. The results are below
Special thanks to many people for helping out, like Sue Nash (she sent a whole book worth of stuff), Arnie Eckerson, Paul Williamson, and Carol Hart . (I still wish I could get some more updated pictures of the town. If anyone wants to help me out there, I can add them to the blog. Simply send to Richie@wgna.com.
There was so much information here that I could easily do 3 or 4 versions of the song. Here's version 1, to the tune of Eric Church's "Springsteen". Love this song. Buy a copy of the original here if you like it too .
Parody of "Springsteen", by Eric Church
New Lyrics (c) 2012 Richie Phillips
If on route 30 you take a ride,
see cows on the left-hand side,
And then you pass an ice cream shop
You'll know where your headin
And if you take a good look around,
there are other things to be found
A town justice walkin' around
Hey, he did our wedding?
And in August if you're there,
better hit the Bannertown fair
Get a sandwich a beverage and more
At Lou and Nancy's food and fuel store
And if you want a view that's great,
There is Lanzi's on the lake
People come by motorcycle, motorboat, or snowmobile
I'm talking about Mayfield
Make sure you see Pour Jim,
He'll be there when you "Check Inn"
Don't be afraid of that statue in the dark,
Near the Adirondack Park
That's statue is the rage,
It's got its own Facebook page
Glenn Henry and the Hartz Family
They're a really big deal
(so are the owners of the Mayfield Grill)
Down in Mayfied
Great place to drive your Harley
It's represented by Hugh Farley
