>This song has been running though my head for most of the night.

I think it has something to do with G. (If you’re out there, I miss you.)

Anchorage Written by Michelle Shocked

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
