Youngstown note: boring looking and bad roads

If DeBartolo hears that you'll be swimmin' with da fishes.

I've spent a fair amount of time in Youngstown and surrounding area.  Not much to look at but the people are fantastic.

I don't go on road trips nearly enough.  Last trip was in September to Ashland, *gasp* Wisconsin. Shocked *double gasp* Relatives live there. Shocked 

I love looking at the scenery we pass.  Even better is when I can stop to take a picture. Cool

Oh, yes!  I leave our county quite a bit, but not nearly enough.  I love to travel, haven't seen enough of our country yet and never been across seas, though.  If Grandma could handle longer rides or understand that we are out on a road trip, we'd do more of it.  However, I'm just thankful for the things she can understand.

Here in northeast Ohio
Back in eighteen-o-three
James and Dannny Heaton
Found the ore that was linin’ yellow creek
They built a blast furnace
Here along the shore
And they made the cannonballs
That helped the union win the war

Here in Youngstown, here in Youngstown
Sweet Jenny I’m sinkin’ down
Here darlin’ in Youngstown

Well my daddy worked the furnaces
Kept ’em hotter then hell
I come home from ’Nam worked my way to scarfer
A job that’d suit the devil as well
Taconite coke and limestone
Fed my children and made my pay
Then smokestacks reachin’ like the arms of god
Into a beautiful sky of soot and clay

Here in Youngstown, here in Youngstown
My sweet Jenny I’m sinkin’ down
Here darlin’ in Youngstown

Well my daddy come on the 0hio works
When he come home from world war two
Now the yards just scrap and rubble
He said, “Them big boys did what Hitler couldn’t do”
These mills they built the tanks and bombs
That won this countries wars
We sent our sons to Korea and Vietnam
Now were wondering what they were dyin’ for

Here in Youngstown, here in Youngstown
My sweet Jenny, I’m sinkin’ down
Here darlin’ in Youngstown

From the Monongahela valley
To the Mesabi iron range
To the coal mines of Appalachia
The story’s always the same
Seven-hundred tons of metal a day
Now sir you tell me the world’s changed
Once I made you rich enough
Rich enough to forget my name

Here in Youngstown, here in Youngstown
My sweet Jenny I’m sinkin’ down
Here darlin’ in Youngstown

When I die I don’t want no part of heaven, I would not do heaven’s work well
I pray the devil comes and takes me to stand in the fiery furnaces of hell

As much as I can. You know how Google Maps are. Sometimes they don't account for one-way streets, closed off-ramps, trenches, seamounts, and impassable glaciers.

Are you gonna swim across the ocean?

Driving. Just have to watch out for the unmarked trenches and seamounts. Fortunately, I know that Marianas Trench is in the Pacific and not the Atlantic.

Watch out for those impassible glaciers, too.
