Are there any songs about cities you've lived in?

Currently live: Amarillo, TX

Songs (and may not be all and I haven't heard all of them):

Amarillo By Morning - George Strait
Amarillo Sky - McBride & the Ride (and later Jason Aldean--I know his version)
Amarillo - Alan Jackson
Is This the Way to Amarillo - Tony Christie (old song, never heard it)

Hometown: Clarksville, TN

Last Train to Clarksville - The Monkees (wasn't sure at first if this was about that Clarksville, but verified that it is).

That's all I could find. Your turn!

  • Yesssss! I'm a "Philly Girl" from Philadelphia, PA and there a plenty of songs but these are my favorites. They are from Elton John, "Philadelphia Freedom", Bruce Springstein, "Streets of Philadelphia" and Eve, "Philly". They are all great lyrical representations of my beloved Philadelphia!

  • Well, I lived in SF for about 10 years, so there's:

    I left my heart in San Francisco - Tony Bennett
    San Francisco (be sure to wear some flowers in your hair) - Scott McKenzie
    San Francisco days, San Francisco nights - Chris Isaac
    Save me, San Francisco - Train

    And I'm sure a ton of others.

    I was born and raised in a rather small town in Holland, so no songs there, heh.

  • Sumter County by Lee Brice!

    I was born and raised in Sumter, South Carolina and graduated from Lakewood High School, which is mentioned in the song. :)

  • My husband is from Poughkeepsie, New York and we got caught by my brother fooling around to the song "Woke Up In a Car" by Something Corporate when I was 16 lol.

    "I woke up in New York City from my sleep behind the wheel/Caught a train to Poughkeepsie and time stood still" lol.

  • Texas in My Rearview Mirror - Mac Davis

    The first line starts out, "I thought happiness was Lubbock, Texas in my rearview mirror..."
    By the end of the song he realizes that coming back home to Lubbock is a good thing, so it's not quite the slap it seems in the first line.

  • Yes there are too many to count for Chattanooga. "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" is the most well known. and I lived brieftly in Pascagoula, MS and there's Jimmy Buffett's "Pascagoula Run" nd Ray Steven's "Mississippi Squirrel" that mentions the church "in that sleepy little town of Pascagoula" which he couldn't have been more right....
