"As a matter of fact I used to live on Rabbit Run Road in Baconton, GA. Even wrote some songs during the 6 years I lived there. "Down a Dirt Road" was and is a good name for it . The road is paved now, but the memories live on"

"Do you want it to be a "real" name or something that's more representative of an idea? Something like "Good Times Road"? Or to your original alliteration idea, Rocky Ridge Road? Red Rock Road?"
