Key West Neighborhoods

Posted in Trop Rock Happenings | Comments Off on Key West Neighborhoods

When most people think of Key West neighborhoods, they think of the beautiful homes that New England sea captains built here, in the style of homes in their hometowns of Gloucester, New Bedford, Kennebunkport, Mystic, Provincetown, Newport, Chatham, and others. Or, they may think of the conch houses that were brought over from the Bahamas, and homes built here subsequently in that style. Others may also think of Hemingway’s French Mediterranean style home, the only one of that style on the island.

Key West, after all, is an island one hundred and six miles out to sea. On the south side is The Atlantic Ocean/Straights of Florida and the north side is The Gulf of Mexico.

Happy Hour – Key West

Posted in Trop Rock Happenings | Comments Off on Happy Hour – Key West

When I was checking on our table at the host stand, a customer who looked like Nicolas Cage, asked the host how to get to Mallary Square. The host didn’t know where Mallery Square was. Odd. I helped Nicolas out, however. The directions are really easy from there.


On another evening there, a few years back, my friend Cyndi thought it would be fun to dress our friend, Doug, up in drag at Happy Hour at the Boat House! Doug is 100% straight, but he’s always up for a laugh… Boa and all!

AT
A NEIGHBORHOOD BAR BACK IN TULSA
THEY GOT A LONG NECK BOTTLE
WAITIN’ JUST FOR ME
AND MY WIFE, SHE RE-MARRIED BACK IN TULSA
BUT
SOMETIMES I STILL HEAR HER THINKING OF ME

(Bridge)
SINCE I
LEFT THE PLACE JUST HASN’T BEEN THE SAME
BUT TULSA HERSELF HAS NOT
FORGOTTEN ME
I LEFT MY MARK SURE AS THE SUN SETS
BUT TULSA, SHE
REMEMBERS ME
3

THREE HUNDRED MILES OUT OF TULSA
IN ’53 A
PICKUP BLEW THE LIGHT
AND TODAY I PINE FOR MY STOLEN LIFE
YOU
KNOW MY GRAND KIDS ARE OLDER THAN ME

(Bridge)

SINCE I
LEFT THE PLACE JUST HASN’T BEEN THE SAME
BUT TULSA HERSELF HAS NOT
FORGOTTEN ME
I LEFT MY MARK SURE AS THE SUN SETS
BUT TULSA, SHE
REMEMBERS ME
BUT TULSA, SHE REMEMBERS ME
BUT TULSA, SHE
REMEMBERS ME
I SAID THAT TULSA REMEMBERS ME
