Long Description:
"On the Way to Cape May" was written by Maurice "Buddy" Nugent and was popular despite never being signed to a label. Al Alberts was one of the many to perform this song, but he took it over the top by performing it on local radio and television shows. It was most popular in the Delaware Valley, where most of Cape May's tourists are from!

Name of Song: On the Way to Cape May

Relevant Verse:
You looked so very pretty, when we met in Ocean City,
like someone, oh, so easy to adore.
I sang this little ditty, on our way through Ocean City,
heading south along New Jersey's shore.

On the way to Cape May, I fell in love with you.
On the way to Cape May, I saw my dreams come true.
I was taken by your smile, as we drifted by Sea Isle.
My heart was really gone when we reached Avalon.
On the way to Cape May, Stone Harbor's skies were blue.
We were naming the day when Wildwood came in view.
If you're gonna be my spouse, we'd better head for that Court House
On the way to Cape May,
On the way to Cape May.
