Thanks for this - never heard it yet & I'm from here. Wildwood seems an unlikely place for a log cabin though. It's more like a lesser micro-Miami. It's awesome, nonetheless. Plenty of cabins on the way, and in the past, quite a rural hidden area.

My sister had this insight on it: "The Cedarwood was in Malaga! [near Vineland, about halfway between Philly and the Shore.] It was a bar that was a log cabin and it was on 47. It was still open when I was in college [about 1979] but didn't last long after that and has since been torn down. There was a period when that was the after-hours place to go (bars in Malaga were always open later than the ones in Millville - some were open all night). My favorite Cedarwood story was when when my friend Don (jokingly) asked the waitress to bring us their best bottle of wine, and she came back with a bottle of Riunite with a twist cap. Don't know anything about the song or the dance , though!"

The Cedarwood was in Malaga! It was a bar that was a log cabin and it was on Rt. 47. I believe it was a country place. It was still open when I was in college (late 70's/early 80's) but didn't last long after that and has since been torn down. There was a period when that was "the" after-hours place to go for my friends and I (bars in Malaga were always open later than the ones in Millville - some were open all night). My favorite Cedarwood story was when when Don Ayers (jokingly) asked the waitress to bring us their best bottle of wine, and she came back with a bottle of Riunite with a twist cap. Don't know anything about the song or the dance , though!

Never heard of the song, but I'd love to pass it along to my parents and their chohorts. I happen to live a mere quarter of a mile from the beginning of Highway 47!

I lived in Cape May for 2 years. The Atlantic Ocean side of SouthJersey is different from the Delaware River side. I guess most folks drive down the Atlantic City Xpressway to the Garden State Parkway. Route 47 is in-land, past farms and such, and cities like Vineland. The locals like country music.

Cape May still has some of the old fishing crowd left. In local parlance, the SeaBilly. There was a local who used to fly the rebel flag outside his house. A transplant for sure, but south jersey is below the mason/dixon line. :-)

And somewhere on the Delaware side, maybe Salem County, is a jin-yoo-ine Rodeo.

P.S. This song make a fine b-side to Traveling Through New Jersey by Max and Ada Rogoff, another fine Jersey anthem courtesy of 'FMU a while back.
