#SLS for 4/19/20

Jim prompts us with familiar places. Specifically our hometowns. How could I not pick this classic? Damn I wanna go dancing.

Without further ado “Is Anybody Going To San Antone” performed by Charley Pride and written by Dave Kirby / Glenn Martin.

Rain dripping off the brim of my hat
It sure is cold today
And here I am’a walking down sixty-six
Wish she hadn’t done me that waySleeping under a table at a road side park
A man could wake up dead
But it sure seems warmer than it did
Sleepin’ in our king size bedIs anybody goin’ to San Antone
Or Phoenix Arizona
Anyplace is alright as long as I
Can forget I’ve ever known herWind whipping down the neck of my shirt
Like I aint got nothing on
But I’d rather fight the wind and rain
Than what I’ve been fighting at homeYonder comes a truck with the US mail
People writing letters back home
Tomorrow she’ll probably want me back
But I’ll still be just as goneIs anybody goin’ to San Antone
Or Phoenix Arizona
Anyplace is alright as long as I
Can forget I’ve ever known herAnyplace is alright as long as I
Forget I’ve ever known her.

  1. This was the first non-nursery rhyme or kids song that I ever learned the full lyrics to. My daddy taught it to me when I was 6 years old living in Chico, Texas. There was 8mm film of me standing on the roof of our Chevy singing it, but I don’t have it and don’t know who does. Love the song choice! I want to go dancing too! If there is a non-smoking honkytonk somewhere. 🙂

    1. Ha! How cute. Wish you could get your hands on the 8mm film. My brother converted ours to CD then sent us copies. Quite a process to take home movies back in the day.

      1. Yes and the cameras were so heavy and bulky. I have no idea where they are. Both my parents are gone and I don’t remember seeing them when we went through my mom’s things.
