County Vacation

Words and Music by Matthew P. Hanley (BMI)


“County Vacation” is about a road trip to Miami gone wrong, leading to a weekend in jail. The narrator was among some party driving down to stay in an ocean condo when a “pit stop at Pauline’s” – some cocktail bar – brings about a bar fight and his arrest. In the song, he is stuck, describing his present sorry state compared to the fun he expected to have.

“County Vacation” is track 9 on the Starring MH album “Seasonal Aisle.”
