Loni Anderson

Loni Anderson is a song based on the real life experience of U.S. Military veteran Jim Hall, who started Nashville’s first professional limousine service in 1977.  Among the many stars he met was TV’s Loni Anderson, who had blown up big on WKRP in Cincinnati at the the time and asked Jim to escort her for a week.

Here, you get a party song mashed with a nostalgia tinge plus a sex symbol, and believe me, we’ll get you a link to this very catchy-sounding tune as soon as it’s ready!

Words and Music, Cecil Disharoon D# riff Dm C# D# F/ D# Dm F A#!

D# G#

He had the picture that he likes to showcase

D# A#

He wasn’t married she had the glow face

D# G#

Her pretty smile made a television treat

D# F A#

He escorted Loni around Nashville to eat

See he’d hung with Johnny Fever and ‘round day three

he asked about that blonde at WKRP

Two-thirty one day alone in a green room

D# F A# G#

Loni said, come help me beat the road gloom

G# A# D# G# A# D# G#

Chorus In ‘79, Loni was looking so fine, hit Music City and the gold mine

G# A# D# G# F A#

Pull down the hat, drive a woman like that anywhere she wants to have a good time

D# Dm C# F

2.He’s got a photo with Loretta Lynn

and big country stars that need a limo friend

I’m not old enough to remember what it means

before New York wrecked the scene

I guess some people you don’t forget

and back then Loni was famous as you get

The brains behind the beauty, sophisticated girl

A blonde bikini pin-up that rocked the whole world

G# A# D# G# A# D# G#

Chorus In ‘79, Loni was looking so fine, hit Music City and the gold mine

G# A# D# G# F A#

C# D# F

Bridge But one week with Loni, to take her on the town

Her picture’s in his Town Car haul the years around

Dm C A#

Thanks for taking good care of me- she signed her head shot

Dm C A#

Froze in time, Loni’s sublime- it’s all that he’s got

G# F

A sprinkle of her star dust, and Lord what a great bust

G# F G# A#

Sometimes a woman needs a fella she trusts!

D# G#

And he’s talked of a book about driving everyone

D# G# A#

But days have passed by where younger folks would know

D# F#

The marquee Music City nights of fun

F# G# A#

130 pictures, he’ll probably let it go

G# A# D# G# A# D#

Clipped-out Verses:

3 D# G#

No one else drove those first limos in Nashville

D# A#

Those big celebrities spark a little thrill

He and Carol Burnett took in a matinee

I wonder what a star and a war vet had to say

Now both his sons live across the state

His adopted daughter, his breakfast date

He says I love you, and they love him too

He golfs every day that the sky’s blue
