    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
