about

Growing up in a small suburb outside of Cincinnati, OH, most of my childhood memories took place not much further away than my own backyard…barbeques, capture the flag, riding bikes, catching fireflies – running around barefoot in shorts and a t-shirt with the other kids while our parents drank Pabst Blue Ribbon and did whatever grown-ups did ‘til we had run ourselves ragged and they were finishing up a pot of coffee and calling it a night. The memory of it all warms my heart and makes me smile. This song came after I made a nostalgic trip to my childhood home and realized that my childhood home only existed in one place anymore…and that was in my memory of it. 6/2006

lyrics

Cincinnati
Written by Julie Neumark & Cary Beare

Home
Across that whistling bridge
Home
To the city where I live

Back in home sweet home Cincinnati
Where the river kiss the sun and say goodnight
All the boys are drinking beers and tellin' stories
Me and Jacky catchin' fireflies

Mama's makin' coffee in the kitchen
and the laughter on the porch is dyin' down
Your sleepy little eyes cannot stay open
Time to pack it in and head on home
Time to pack it in and hear on home (We're goin')

Home
Across that whistling bridge
Home
To the city where I live

Back in home sweet home, Cincinnati
Where the river still kiss the sun and say goodnight
All the boys have moved away and they got married
Little Jacky's next in line
Well there's no more coffee in kitchen
And the laughter on the porch is long gone
I do not recognize these old surroundings
Is this the place I once belonged?
Is this the place I called my home? (I wanna go)

Home
Across that whistling bridge
Home
To the city where I live
Home
Across that whistling bridge
Home
To the city where I live
