Well, she comes from Tallahassee
She got a hi-fi chassis
Maybe looks a little sassy
But to me, she’s real classy
Yeah, my Tallahassee Lassie
Down in F-L-A

Tallahassee Lassie  Singer: Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon; Writer: Ellas Mcdaniel

He was born and raised around Jacksonville
A nice young man, not the kind to kill
But a jealous fight and a flashing blade
Sent him on the run to the Everglades
Runnin’ like a dog through the Everglades

Everglades Artists:Kingston Trio, Writer: Harlan Howard

We had it all
Just like Bogie and Bacall
Starring in our old late, late show
Sailing away to Key Largo

Key Largo Singer: Bernie Higgins, Writer: Bernie Higgins, Sonny Limbo
