Old Cape Cod
Patti Page Lyrics


If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air
Quaint little villages here and there
(You're sure)You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod
(Cape Cod, that old Cape Cod)

If you like the taste of a lobster stew
Served by a window with an ocean view
(You're sure)You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

Winding roads that seem to beckon you
Miles of green beneath a sky of blue
Church bells chimin' on a Sunday morn
Remind you of the town where you were born

If you spend an evening you'll want to stay
Watching the moonlight on Cape Cod Bay
You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

(aah, aah)

If you spend an evening you'll want to stay (on Cape Cod Bay)
Watching the moonlight on Cape Cod Bay
You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod
You're sure to fall in love
You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

In March of 1972, I was 20 years old and in school at North Texas State University in the great jazz program there (I'm a trombonist). During that time, I got a call to play a two-week tour with Patti Page. I really needed the money, so I was able to arrange my schedule to do the tour, make a little money, and then go back to school.

Patti was 45 years old at the time as I recall. And all I knew about her were her two hits, The Tennessee Waltz and How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?

So, I expected the tour to be dull and lacking in musical integrity. I was far too hip, you see, as an aspiring modern jazz musician playing in one of the top bands at one of the top jazz schools in the world to take seriously some pop star who had recorded some silly tunes in the 1950s.

Man, was I wrong. Was I ever so ridiculously wrong!

During the first rehearsal, the arrangements turned out to be very hip and featured many really beautifully composed standard songs that I had never heard Patti sing. Patti did sing her hits, for sure, but she did very much more than that - and sounded so damn good!

Patti was a lot of fun be with, too! She was like one of the guys after our performances and spent a lot of time with us. She was a gem.

At the end of that tour, I found myself wondering if there was any song from The American Songbook that Patti didn’t know. She seemed to know so many. And she sang them all so beautifully. And when she first sang this song, "Old Cape Cod", as we accompanied her, she won us over and gained our unequivocal respect.

Never again after that tour did I underestimate anyone from the world of pop music when I happened to get a gig with them. Patti changed my young mind about that forever.

When I got the news that Patti died on New Year’s day, 2013, tears welled up in my eyes. But, in large measure, they were tears of gratitude for what I had learned from her about how never to prejudge or underestimate anyone in the world of music.

Artistic greatness can come from anywhere. It was such a surprise and such a joy when I was a very young man to hear it flow continuously from the voice of the sweet and endearingly ingenuous Patti Page.

This genuinely makes me tear up as funny as it sounds, its just such a lovely song and fills me with butterflies. Her voice is truly entrancing

P Baker

A song from a time where men were men and women were women. A simpler time when Americans all loved their country and flag.

Thankyou for these wonderful insights of the lovely Patti Page. Her voice is pure magic singing this song. It's great that Groove Amarda has bought her back to our attention.
