"Florida" as written by and V. Chestnutt....
Florida, Florida, the redneck riviera
Florida, Florida, there's no more pathetic place in America
Yes a man must make unpopular decisions, surely from time to time
And a man can only stand what a man can stand
It's a wobbly volatile line

Florida, Florida, the water table is fucked
Florida, Florida, there's no more perfect place to give it all up
A man must take his life in his own hands
Hit those nails on the head
And I respect a man who goes to where he wants to be
Even if he wants to be dead

Florida, Florida, its a tropical paradise
Florida, Florida, there's no more perfect place to retire from life

    General CommentNobody has commented on this great song so I will. Supposedly Vic wrote this song about somebody he knew who moved to Florida and ended up commiting suicide by shooting himself in the head with a nail gun. Anyway, despite the gloomy story it is a great song by a great songwriter.
