Song Lyrics - Gary Indiana [song.htm]


© By Meredith Wilson

Gary, Indiana!
What a wonderful name,

Named for Elbert Gary of judiciary fame.
Gary, Indiana, as a Shakespeare would say,
Trips along softly on the tongue this way—

Gary, Indiana, Gary Indiana, Gary, Indiana,
Let me say it once again.
Gary, Indiana, Gary, Indiana, Gary, Indiana,

That's the town that "knew me when."

 If you'd like to have a logical explanation
How I happened on this elegant syncopation,

I will say without a moment of hesitation
There is just one place
That can light my face.

Gary, Indiana,
Gary Indiana,
Not Louisiana, Paris, France, New York, or Rome, but--

Gary, Indiana,
Gary, Indiana,
Gary Indiana,

My home sweet home.
