I am looking for a song by John Prine (I think). For the life of me I cant find it!

It had the following lyrics in it. "So meet me on the Lake Street bridge after darkness falls, your from Minneapolis, I am from St Paul" "You are big and modern, we are old and small, you from Minneapolis, I am from St. Paul"

(A premium membership awaits the first person that can Email me a MP3 of the song)

Damnit, I cant find it! Perhaps it was not John Prine. I did find this gem in there. Laughing

Spanish Pipedream (AKA Blow Up Your TV)
John Prine

She was a level-headed dancer on the road to alcohol
And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
Well she pressed her chest against me
About the time the juke box broke
Yeah, she gave me a peck on the back of the neck
And these are the words she spoke

Chorus:
Blow up your TV throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own

Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve
Well, she danced around the bar room and she did the hoochy-coo
Yeah she sang her song all night long, tellin' me what to do

Repeat chorus:

Well, I was young and hungry and about to leave that place
When just as I was leavin', well she looked me in the face
I said "You must know the answer."
"She said, "No but I'll give it a try."
And to this very day we've been livin' our way
And here is the reason why

We blew up our TV threw away our paper
Went to the country, built us a home
Had a lot of children, fed 'em on peaches
They all found Jesus on their own

I just went through a load of those lyrics as well, can't see anything like it, probably a different artist sang it, certainly nothing on Google for the lyrics anyway.

Well, judging by the cities mentioned, it could be Garrison Keillor, but I can't find anything about it.

I haven't looked, but is that the same "Blow Up Your TV" that came out in ca. 1971?

If so, I remember that the only radio station in Boston that would play anything from it was WILD.

I laughed every time I heard the title.

He is a bit of a pariah around these parts, since his exile to New York and recent return. But I know 100% that it was not his song. I still look at him as a sell out, I cant forgive him for leaving Minnesota in the first place. Evil or Very Mad (I hope you are reading this Gary!)

I am sure it was, that is when he was in his prime. I have been on the phone all night hunting down this song. I last heard it about 20 years ago while camping out at a softball tournament. I am calling people that I have not talked to in years, I am on a mission! Laughing

Edit again: Here is him from the late 70's

As a librarian we recommend www.allmusic.com as the site to search for music.

This is the listing of John Prine's songs:

Someone wasn't kidding about Keillor-esque. The only thing close I could find was his. LOL. Still looking. Odd...

Gack! Please don't swear in this room, there are women and children in here.

Edit: It must have been sung by someone else... Google called me today and told me that they are out of results. Wink

I did find this gem...
