Story Behind the Song

Nostalgic song about a small town in Ohio. Where people were hard-working, loving, and the heartfelt soul of America.


Conneaut, Ohio
There's a place in Ohio
Where the Erie fog rolls in slow
At night
You can hear that foghorn moanin
Clear out to Toledo

The grit from steam engines
Covered clothesline sheets and floors
The Bessemer and Lake Erie
laid off men
Who had to
run a tab
at Ms. Cinda's store
In Conneaut Ohio
Conneaut Ohio

Been round this busy world
sky scrapers going up and coming down
there's no place taller
Than that big little Ohio town

The Sunbeam girl sign
shining on the door
Welcomed children
Who bought
- , Licorice pipes ,Mary Janes and
candy Black Crows

Hard work and homespun love
Good friends and family ties
On that " long tail " lake
Where the heart of America
Never dies

The more I learn of this modern
world - seems the less I know
But I remember where
folks walked proud
and waved from their porch
In Conneaut Ohio
Conneaut Ohio

In that town on
Lake Erie where the fog would
Roll in slow
Where Americas heart always beats
In a place called
Conneaut Ohio
Conneaut Ohio

On that long tail lake
Where the fog rolls in slow
Where Americas heart beats
In Conneaut Ohio
