Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Off to Philadelphia
Subject: RE: Off to Philadelphia in the morning
This is stretching the thread a bit but: There is a song, I think sung by Gene Autry about a Philadelphia Lawyer. It is essentially about a Philadelphia Lawyer in Reno Nevada trying to run off with a Hollywood Cutie and who runs a-cropper with her tough western boyfriend.

Question 1. I have heard the phrase "Philadelphia Lawyer" many of times as a description of a type of person rather than just a lawyer practicing in Philly. What does the phrase mean?

Question 2. What is the name of the song, and who did sing it?
