Bound for Glory

Bound for Glory

by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band

From the 1988 album Roadhouse. Includes the lines:

I got a pretty little girl
Across the South County line
All day long down at that shipyard
She's been on my mind

I know a rockin' little joint
Right off of Route 95
Man you oughta' see her dance
She really lets it unwind

The "pretty little girl across the South County line" likely lives in Exeter or North Kingstown, which together form the northern border of Washington or "South" County. The Shipyard was a drive-in at Field's Point in Providence that operated from 1957 to 1976. Route 95, of course, bisects Rhode Island southwest to northeast, from Hopkinton to Pawtucket.
