Did you know there's a song dedicated to Myrtle Beach?
Did you know… That songwriter Harrison Elliott wrote a new tune about Myrtle Beach back in 1951? The sheet music for Elliott’s “Myrtle Beach, S.C.” was published by The South Carolina Musician in Andrews, S.C. And here’s that blast from the past, to be sung allegretto moderato!
Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Words and music by Harrison Elliott
Come on to Myrtle Beach, S.C.
And swim the ocean blue with me.
Then we’ll stroll in the sand
Of the nation’s finest strand
Sweetheart, you and me.
And under Carolina skies
By the old Palmetto trees
Where the breezes below
I’ll say I love you so
Down in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Many thanks to Robert Shelley for bringing this to our attention some years ago.
