Subject: Coca-Cola Song
From: GUEST,Andy Howes
Date: 24 Jul 01 - 10:01 AM

Some weeks ago I put out a request for the Coca-Cola Song which was very popular on the Isle of Wight in the 60's. It was sung by John Green and Lauri Saye amongst others and they also sang the Advertising Man song requested by Vectis. I would still like the words to this song and also to the Floating Bridge song ( Cowes not Woolston ). So if anyone has the lyrics to those old Lauri numbers PLEASE get in touch. Thanks, Andy.

The Floating Bridge Song that you're after, is that this one by Sleepy John Estes?

FLOATING BRIDGE - Sleepy John Estes

Now I never will forget that floating bridge.
Now I never will forget that floating bridge.
Now I never will forget that floating bridge.
Tell me five minutes' time underwater I was hid.

When I was going down, I throwed up my hands.
Now when I was going down, I throwed up my hands.
Now when I was going down, I throwed up my hands,
"Please take me on dry land."

Now they carried me in the house and they laid me 'cross the bank.
Now they carried me in the house, they laid me 'cross the bank.
Now they carried me in the house, and they laid me 'cross the bank.
'Bout a gallon o' muddy water I had drank.

They dropped me off and they laid me in the bed.
Now they dropped me off and they laid me in the bed.
Now they dropped me off and they laid me in the bed.
Couldn't hear nothin' but muddy water run through my head.

Now my mother often taught me, "Quit playin' a bum."
Now my mother often taught me, "Quit playing a bum."
Now my mother often taught me, "Son, quit playin' a bum.
Go somewhere, settle down, and make a crumb."

Now people standin' on the bridge was screaming and crying.
People on the bridge was screamin' and cryin'.
Now the people on the bridge stand screamin' and cryin',
"Lord have mercy; where's we gwine?"

ANOTHER COCA-COLA SONG Tune: Any standard C&W tune that fits Additional verses welcome, the more cliched the better

O I long for dear Montana
Where the longhorns roam the fields
Where my granmaw sits a-spinnin'
And my momma cooks the meals

I've been away three long years
Down in Memphis Tennessee
Far away from darling Rosie
And my friends and family

And I long for Coca-Cola
It's the real thing for me
They even drink it in Mongolia
And where they talk in Swahili

Coke had a big promotion a decade or two ago in which the "Up With People" young 'uns sang "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing," with "... I'd like to buy the world a Coke..." inserted to replace "...I'd like to hold it in my hand."

If this is the song you're looking for, let me know. I can post the lyrics if nobody else does first.
