Tuxedo Junction

Lyrics ,Music:Julian Dash ,Buddy Feyne
Erskine Hawkins ,William Luther Johnson

The song was publishe 1940.

The song was introduced by Erskine Hawkins's orchestra.
The lyrics were written by Buddy Feyne.
This original version, by the Erskine Hawkins Orchestra
(the new name for the college dance band
known as the Bama State Collegians)
rose to number 7 on the national hit parade.

Glenn Miller and His Orchestra had the most successful recording
of the song in a best-selling (Billboard Number 1) record,
RCA Bluebird B-10612-A, in 1939 in an arrangement by Glenn Miller
which slowed down the tempo and added trumpet fanfares.
The Glenn Miller recording sold 115,000 copies in the first week alone.
It was featured in the 1953 Glenn Miller biopic The Glenn Miller Story
starring James Stewart and Harry Morgan.

It was covered by numerous bands and swing orchestras and solo artists
such as Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Frankie Avalon and Joe Jackson,
and became the theme song for The Manhattan Transfer,
first recorded on their album The Manhattan Transfer in 1975.
Bob Marley used this song as an inspiration for his hit "Kaya".
It was also the inspiration for an all-girl disco group,
entitled "Tuxedo Junction".




Feelin' low
Rockin' slow
I want to go
Right back where I belong

Way down south in Birmingham
I mean south in Alabam'
There's an old place where people go
To dance the night away

They all drive or walk for miles
To get jive that southern style
It's an old jive that makes you want
To dance till break of day

It's a junction where the town folks meet
At each function in a tux they greet you

Come on down, forget your care
Come on down, you'll find me there
So long town, I'm heading for
Tuxedo Junction now

Feelin' low
Rockin' slow
I want to go
Right back where I belong

Way down south in Birmingham
I mean south in Alabam'
There's an old place where people go
To dance the night away

They all drive or walk for miles
To get jive that southern style
It's an old jive that makes you want
To dance till break of day

It's a junction where the town folks meet
At each function in a tux they greet you

Come on down, forget your care
Come on down, you'll find me there
So long town, I'm heading for
Tuxedo Junction now

Tuxedo Junction now
