lyrics

A Hundred frozen winters past - Long time gone
Hundred melting springs at last - Long time gone
Hundred childred moved away - Long time gone
Hundred more come back to stay - Long time gone

Lay your cares aside
It’s been so long
Come to the foot of the lake
Bring everyone along
Join all folks from near and far
Just look around see who we are
Come celebrate this old home town

There’s friends to cheer at the softball game - See you there
We’ll take our chances on the rain - See you there
Well come on out ‘cause you never know - See you there
Who’ll show up at the variety show - See you there

Lay your cares aside
It’s been so long
Come to the foot of the lake
Bring everyone along
Love that hike through local trees
We feast tonight on blueberries
Come celebrate this old home town

Friday night o what a scene – come on down
Parade takes over 113 – come on down
We’ll be dancing to that Old Time Band – come on down
And eating beens fresh from the sand – come on down

Lay your cares aside
It’s been so long
Come to the foot of the lake
Bring everyone along
This week arrives just once a year
I can’t believe it’s finally here
Come celebrate this old home town
One hundred years the fireworks roar
I’ll see you in one hundred more
Come celebrate this old home town (long time gone)
Come celebrate this old home town (long time gone)
Come celebrate this old home town
