Written from the perspective of the Hahira, Georgia conclave in the big city of Hot ‘Lanta, this song off Ray Stevens’ 1980 LP Shriner’s Convention, ran up the charts briefly in 1980, and still apparently causes controversy among Shriners.
I wonder who those pillars of the community, ‘Lustrious Potentate Bubba and Noble Lumpkin Coy, really were?
“I just hope Charlene don’t find out about this, Coy!
What? Well, how’d you get that big motorcycle
Up there on the high dive, Coy?
Now Coy, Dad blame it, that ain’t no way to act”
Here’s the video:
a special meetin’, we get back to Hahira –Shriner’s Convention by Ray Stevens, 1980
PS: Ray Stevens is from north Georgia, so that’s not a Hahira accent, but it doesn’t matter in this song.
