I took time out to write to my old friend,
Walked across that burning bridge.
Mailed my letter off to New Orleans
But her reply came from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

She said, Hey girl, it's about time you wrote,
It's been over two years you know my old friend
Take me back to the days of the front porch drinking
And the all night noding
Hey Laura, we was writers then.

Laura, you know it's kinda funny,
Nawlins always seemed so big
But you know you're downwind from Three Mile Island
When you're harrassed out in Harrisburg.


Hey girl I think the last time I saw you
must have been at that amazing Noder meet
What was the name of that writeup we did?
I forgot how to node.
I don't recall how to node.

Harrisburg.
Harrassed out in Harrisburg.
Jake sold his Jeep and we got a place,
Zoe lost a tooth but she's digging school
Henry and I are heading out to Target for shoes
I sound like a housewife.
Hey Laura, I think I'm a housewife.

Hey girl what's it like to be in New York?
New York City, imagine that?
Tell me, what's it like to live the life of a writer?
Jake says send a picture.
Jake he says 'Hello'.
Jake he says 'Keep on rocking girl'.
Keep on rocking.


Laura, you know it's kinda funny,
Nawlins always seemed so big
But it's not like the biggest dioxin emitter
When you're harrassed out in Harrisburg.
