"A love story that begins in Ocean City and wends its way along the Jersey Shore through Sea Isle City, Avalon, Stone Harbor, Cape May Court House, Wildwood, and romantic Cape May." (Words and music by Bud Nugent, 1960).

Lyrics:
You looked so very pretty, when we met in Ocean City,
like someone, oh, so easy to adore.
I sang this little ditty, on our way to Ocean City,
heading south along New Jersey's shore.

On the way to Cape May, I fell in love with you.
On the way to Cape May, I saw my dreams come true.
I was taken by your smile, as we drifted by Sea Isle.
My heart was really gone when we reached Avalon.
On the way to Cape May, Stone Harbor's skies were blue.
We were naming the day when Wildwood came in view.
If you're gonna be my spouse, we'd better head for that Court House
On the way to Cape May,
On the way to Cape May.

I didn't find any more lyrics, but I did find a version with chords, here:

LOL.... I have to send this to my mom... she was born in Cape May and my uncle still lives there near the beach.

We spent two weeks in August every year at my grandparents, going to the beach, picking blackberries, going to Wildwood ....

The song left out going to Cape May Point to see the old concrete ship, Atlantis, where she broke in half - proving that ships made from concrete weren't such a good idea.

Joe Gindhart was my grandfather's brother. We know that he co-wrote this song but he is not credited on BMI. Does anyone have any ideas as to how we can get this rectified?
