Lyrics

I took time out to write to my old friend I walked across that burning bridge Mailed my letter off to Dallas But her reply came from Anchorage, Alaska She said: Hey girl it`s about time you wrote It`s been over two years you know, my old friend Take me back to the days of the foreign telegrams And the all-night rock `n rollin` Hey Chel, we was wild then Hey Chel, you know it`s kinda funny Texas always seems so big But you know you`re in the largest state in the Union When you`re anchored down in Anchorage Hey girl I think the last time I saw you Was on me and Leroy`s wedding day What was the name of that love song you played? I forgot how it goes I don`t recall how it goes

Anchorage Anchored down in Anchorage Leroy got a better job so we moved Kevin lost a tooth, now he`s started school I got a brand new eight month old baby girl I sound like a housewife Hey Chel, I think I`m a housewife Hey girl what`s it like to be in New York? New York City, imagine that! Tell me, what`s it like to be a skateboard punk rocker? Leroy says, `Send a picture` Leroy says, `Hello!` Leroy says, `Aw, keep on rocking girl` Yeah, keep on rocking Hey Chel, you know it`s kinda funny Texas always seems so big But you know you`re in the largest state in the Union When you`re anchored down in Anchorage Oh, Anchorage Anchored down in Anchorage Oh, Anchorage
