Join the Chordsmen, their quartets, and guest performers for a musical and historical journey across America! We’ll start the tour in The Big Apple, the city that doesn’t sleep, “New York, New York,” and “Give (our) Regards to Broadway,” then take a side trip to baseball’s Hall of Fame in Cooperstown–”Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
Now we need a day at the beach in Atlantic City with our honeys, “Under the Boardwalk.” A sojourn to the Northeast promises a romantic view of “Moonlight in Vermont,” sung beautifully by Betsy Gray, and lobster stew in “Old Cape Cod.” How nostalgic to hear the Yale glee club sing “The Whiffenpoof Song” in nearby Connecticut. We’ll also take a tour of our nation’s Capital and celebrate “America the Beautiful.”
Then we “Cross that Mason-Dixon Line” and visit “My Old Kentucky Home,” on the way to enjoying “Carolina in the Morning.” We’ll take a clickety-clack ride on the “Chattanooga Choo-Choo” before climbing “Rocky Top” and viewing the beautiful Appalachians. Finding ourselves “Alabamy Bound,” we then head to the Sunshine State to visit Disney World, UF, and FSU. “Georgia on (our) Mind” keeps us in the Sun Belt, and The Big Easy pulls us there, too, asking, “Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans?”
Soon, I-10 draws us further West where we meet the cowboys and coyotes, the rabbits and the dogies, “Deep in the Heart of Texas.” When the wind comes sweeping down the plain, and the wavin’ wheat sure smells sweet, we arrive in “Oklahoma, ok!” Branson, Missouri’s, music center pulls us back for a rousing concert by Bill Jones and his Pasture Prime Bluegrass Band. When one of our travelers remembers “I’ve Got a Gal in Kalamazoo” we visit her on our way to The Windy City, “Chicago, Chicago.”
But “Workin’ on the Railroad” propels us all the way to the Pacific Coast, because “California, Here I Come.” At last, we open up that Golden Gate to meet our sun-kist miss, the heart we “left in San Francisco.” Yes, the Chordsmen enthusiastically affirm: “This Is My Country!”
