Once upon a time there was a town only big enough for a church, a bar and a whole lot of nice people. This is my home town.

Story behind the song
This song is on the radio for the holidays right now in Southern Indiana. It's about my tiny home town and how it relates to the rest of the universe. I'm thankful for all the support it's had from the folks back home and hope it can contribute in some small way to your Christmas also. The other Christmas song of mine here on SoundClick is the Side B of this single. If you get a chance, please give it a listen also. It's not on the radio, because they thought it was too slow and too sad to listen to at Christmas.
Lyrics
Have a Saint Henry Christmas! All over St. Henry-- Even at the Bungalow. They've got a lotta Christmas cheer-- Sodie too if you don't drink beer. All over St. Henry, Have a Saint Henry Christmas this year! Over Dubois County-- Even the Jasper Wildcats. Everybody knows the Raiders are the best, But I had fun at the Strassenfest, And Christmas we're one big family Just like the Tempels or the Kippenbrocks. If happiness could buy money, We'd have more gold than in Fort Knox. Over Dubois County, Have a Saint Henry Christmas this year! All over Indiana-- Even Evansville. I've read the Courier for ages-- At least the funny pages. All over Indiana, Have a Saint Henry Christmas this year! All over America-- Even Kentucky. I heard a joke about a man from there Who tried to catch fish by walkin' in the air, But Christmas we're one big family Just like the Tempels or the Kippenbrocks. If happiness could buy money, We'd have more gold than Goldilocks. All over America, Have a Saint Henry Christmas this year! All over the world-- Even in Germany. Our grandfathers moved away, But Aunt Friede says it ain't a bad place to stay. All over the world, Hapt ein Sankt Heinrich Weihnachten dieses Jahr! All over the universe-- Even right here in St. Henry Church. Fewer people here than pigs or corn, But tonight a little baby boy is born, 'Cause God loves the small towns, 'Cause he knows he's always welcome here; So, from my town to your town, Have a Saint Henry Christmas this year! Have a Saint Henry Christmas!
