Subject: RE: Help: Songs with Cities or Towns in title?
Greg, you mentioned Himazas - one of my favourites:

(I'm Going Back To) Himazas

I'm going back to Himazas,
Never again to roam.
I'm jogging along,
And humming a song,
"A day's march nearer home",
There's a cottage so neat
At the top of the street
And it's numbered ninety four, so,
I'm going back to Himazas,
Him as 'as the pub next door.

Written by Fred Austin, published 1927.

PS There's also Durham Town, The Rochdale Mashers, What Kind of Fulham I, Meet Me in St Louis, Girl from Ipanema, In the Old Bazaar in Cairo, Margate, and no doubt many, many more.
