Dedicated to my hometown Marietta, OH
A Stroll Downtown
Take a walk stroll downtown
check out the city, see who’s around.
See some friends, stop to talk
check out the headlines, continue to walk.
Smell fresh rolls at the bakery
only real frosting, no fakery.
Pass some new faces, a quick little Hi
not real friends, so no time for bye.
Look in the window of the antique store
same old stuff, just a bore.
Enjoy my walk, strolling down main street
clean and friendly, really neat.
Interesting display of summer shoes
tennies in white, colors and blues.
A small friendly town, I call it home
friends all around, I’m never alone.
