Hangin' at the Kelly One-Stop

No surprises here... this is a countrified boogie about a gas station/country store a few miles from my house. As far as I can tell, it's the only building in Kelly that isn't a house, church, or fire station... which means it's the only social gathering place/watering hole/restaurant in the area. I stopped by there last Tuesday evening, and it was absolutely packed with people from their teens to their fifties. I was planning to write another verse, and may still do that, but William tells me it already says everything there is to say about the place, so I'm calling it complete in short form.

Boogie woogie isn't my forte, but you'll get the idea.



Hangin' at the Kelly One-Stop
dfl - 1 Aug 2009

In Sa'Ca'Lina there's a place that's right up your alley
But you ain't gonna find it in your Rand McNally
On highway number nine you gonna find a wide spot
They call it the Kelly One-Stop shop
They got both kinds of bait... fishin' and jail
Things are lookin' great if you're a red-blooded male!

Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Hangin' at the Kelly One-Stop!
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Hangin' at the Kelly One-Stop!
Bootin' and a-scootin' with the cream of the crop
Hangin' at the Kelly One-Stop shop!

[boogie riff – 16 bars]

Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Hangin' at the Kelly One-Stop!
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Yeah! (Yeah!)
Hangin' at the Kelly One-Stop!
Chuggin' down a cold pop-top til you drop!
Hangin' at the Kelly One-Stop shop!
