​Lindy Comes To Town

This song is by Al Stewart and appears on the album Between the Wars (1995).

Original video
Lindy flew his plane across the dark Atlantic
Put her down near Paris and the crowds went frantic
They raced across the field, to touch the wings and wheels
Reached inside the cockpit just to see if he was real

Back in New York City people watched and waited
The news came down the wire and they celebrated
And in that time so brief, it was everyone's belief
That the world had grown no bigger than a pocket handkerchief

When Lindy comes to town and all the bands are playing
Lindy comes to town and all the flags are waving
Mr Coolidge he will say, it's a public holiday
You can see them ride down Wall Street in a ticker-tape parade

I wanna be there in that crown upon that bright, bright morning
I can tell the world I saw a new day dawning
With my baby by my side in among that human tide
I wanna be right there when Lindy comes to town,
I wanna be right there when Lindy comes to town

Every day is better than the day before it
If I see a rain cloud then I just ignore it
Everybody says it'll get much better yet
It's 1927 and my whole life lies ahead

Gonna get myself a car and find a place to park it
Get a little cash and put it in the market
And on my wedding day I will turn around and say
There never was a better time than this one anyway

When Lindy comes to town and all the bands are playing
Lindy comes to town and all the flags are waving
Mr Coolidge he will say, it's a public holiday
You can see them ride down Wall Street in a ticker-tape parade

I want to be there in that crown upon that bright, bright morning
I can tell the world I saw a new day dawning
With my baby by my side in among that human tide
I wanna be right there when Lindy comes to town
I wanna be right there when Lindy comes to town
