On the banks of the Chattahoochee, where the piedmont meets the plain,
the birds in trees singing sounds
washed by gentle rain
---way down.........
the tender age of yesterday,
the promise of today.
Take pride is what she offers you and help her on her way.
For all that she may ever be, be sure that you...
are Columbus Georgia

The Campptown ladies sing this song,
Doo-da, Doo-da
The Camptown racetrack's five miles long
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin' to run all night
Goin' to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray

Oh, the long tailed filly and the big black horse,
Doo-da, doo-da
Come to a mud hole and they all cut across,
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin' to run all night
Goin' to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray

I grew up in Columbus and remember this playing on TV as part of the Chamber of Commerce or visitors bureau, I don't remember that but I do remember the song, it had musical parts from the Columbus Stockade Blues tastefully woven through it and was a great song for the time.
Can anyone find a link to the recording?

That's some news to me, I remember those illustrations in the closing credits of early episodes but had no idea Bob Ross was the artist.

I always was a fan of Ross.

Man o'man those were the days of trying to catch the biggest fish to win a Zebco 404 on Sportsmans Lodge.
Ridley Bell was the man.

Saw him once as a kid at Spano's restaurant. A real nice man.
Hello Jack, good to find that those old Sportsman's Lodge videos are still around.

Sorry, must disagree on the words
On the banks of the Chattahoochee
Where the Piedmont meets the plain
And the verdant valley's Georgia Pines
Are washed by a gentle rain...

Some of the links are listed...
But The Breeze Kings do a cover of one or two of them.
Heard them at Fox Hall a while back.

Good times.

Based on the old country song "Columbus Stockade Blues"...

Similar lyrics and exact same melody.
