"Holy City" as written by Edwin Cole Mc Cain and Matthew Charles Rollings....
Midnight in the Holy City
Playground for restless souls
Graveyards for the sons of Ft. Sumpter
And the ghostly daughters
Wait for their boys to come home

Moonlight in the Holy City
So thick it warms the air
Burned my heart on a sweet southern flame
Like a hug from your mama saying it will be OK

Spilt my blood, in the Holy City
Seen the flood of a thousand rains
I ran away from the Holy City
Heard the spirits in the steeple singing
You'll be back again

Sunrise in the Holy City
The kings and queens shuffle by
I'm born here of my own ashes
Just lay me down here when I die

Spilt my blood, in the Holy City
Seen the flood of a thousand rains
I ran away from the Holy City
Heard the spirits in the steeple singing
You'll be back again

    General CommentThis is the roadtrip song that I turn up loud when I am driving to the Holy City (Charleston,SC) There is so much history in C-town. It is a place that calls you back and you want more of it.
    There are TONS of churches in C-town which is where "Holy City" comes from.
    I remember Edwin sang this at one of his shows...amazing!
