Charlie Baum Lyr Req: Bridgeport by the Sea (Vaughn deLeath) (13) Lyr Add: BRIDGEPORT BY THE SEA (Vaughn deLeath) 29 Jul 08

Thanks to the last message, I was able to find a Real-Audio archive recording of Vaughn DeLeath singing "Bridgeport by the Sea" on Dave the Spazz's playlists, and transcribed the following from that recording:

Vaughn DeLeath

Some folks think the sun shines brightest
In a far-off tropic clime
But for mine I'll take New England
Winter spring or summertime
I know my fervor won't grow less
For Bridgeport is my port of happiness

Bridgeport by the sea
That's where I'll always want to be
Where the great ships go sailing by
Where there's always a smiling sky

Bridgeport by the sea
Is home sweet home to me
Though we have a great centennial
My devotion is perennial
For my Bridgeport by the sea

Lovely parks where the kids can play
Or slack around at the beach all day

Bridgeport by the sea
Fair home of industry
You can bet your bottom penny but
I will never leave Connecticut
And my Bridgeport by the sea

--Charlie Baum
