Alanabit. Surely you have not forgotten:

'Twas in Callington town, the bells they did sound
They rang for a hat and a belt laced with gold
But the men of North Lew rang so steady and true
That there never were better in Devon I hold


Mind you Ashwater was the first choice, they only went to Callington as an afterthought

"Mer Losse d'r Dom en Kölle" (Cologne Carnival song) and our own McGrath of Harlow's beautiful, "Green Heart of Harlow" spring to mind.
One day someone will write a ditty about Callington in Cornwall. So far no one has been so inspired to my knowledge. They say that it is so dull there that the taxi drivers are safe, because there is nowhere worth driving to in a hurry!

Side Note: Look for lyrics for "I've Been Everywhere" and "I've Been Everywhere in Texas" ... you want songs with cities in them, those are two you should get a kick out of.

This has probably been mentioned before in this thread, but there's a general feeling in the UK that British place names - in contemporary songs - don't sound quite right, and that their U.S.A counterparts somehow sound more romantic e.g. " Riding a fast train to San Antonio" sounds a lot better than " Riding a fast train to Huddersfield"

Although I'm not really a C&W kinda guy, I immediately thought of two classic country songs with city names. After scrolling quickly down this l-o-o-n-g thread, I don't *think* anyone has mentioned either one yet:

Abilene, Abilene (prettiest town I've ever seen...")

("Last night I went to sleep in") Detroit City ("...I wanna go home, I wanna go home, Oh how I wanna go home...")
