GUEST,Chocolate Pi Lyr Req: One More Town ? (6) One More Town ? 16 Feb 00

Lately, a song that I learned at summer camp probably about six or seven years ago has been floating around my head. I don't know anything about it besides sections of the lyrics which may have been modified by my internal folk process, so any information on this song (who wrote it? where can I find a copy? would really be appreciated. Here's what I remember of it:

the chorus ran One more town, and I'll be going Fight for the living and I'll be there If there's one more song that I'll be singing, I'm always going but I don't know where. (keep on moving, moving on ..)

Went up to New York City ..something... something ... There were bright city lights and girls in pink tights But their faces were all painted on.

Went down to New Orleans last summer On a flatboat, poling my way. There were Southern ladies and streets that were shady Only held one thing for me (?)

I think there was one more verse dealing with where the narrator was born and raised...

Thanks for any help! Chocolate Pi
