“Alabamy Bound” is tin pan alley tune written in 1924 by Ray Henderson with lyrics by Buddy DeSilva and Bud Green. Here’s a fun Les Paul and Mary Ford version. There are actually two songs on this video and one fun 1950’s Listerine commercial. I just love the “your husband would love you if only you weren’t so stinky!” message.
Interestingly enough (but probably only to me) the one and only time I ever took a long distance train trip was the last time I went to Minnesota. I love train travel but this time I’ll be driving in a rental car. It’s not as glamorous but it’ll get me there quickly and conveniently. It was also a lot cheaper thanks to my Illinois Farm Bureau discount. I’ve decided not to explain what a woman who won’t even keep house plants is doing with a Farm Bureau membership. It’s not a long or complicated story. I just like to keep an air of mystery about myself.
