KING EDDY HOTEL

Goodbye

Friday August 13 2004

A little epitaph to a passing of yet another Edwardian Era

 

In the days of old

A tale was told

of how King Edward had the Blues.

He wanted to wed Wallis

But his kin reviled the news

And so he went to exile

On an island in the sea

On the Ocean where King Eddy had the Blues

 

Just yesterday

I heard the news

A century's tale came to a close

How King Eddy's hotel namesake

Was in her final throes.

The walls were moldy where so boldly

Bill and others played their tunes...

The story stayed the same

In a city where King Eddy sang the Blues.
