Breaded Clams & Beer (An Ode to Bill’s Place)

Breaded Clams (and Fried Cauliflower) & Beer!

If you’re ped’lin’ your bike
Along the C & O
Down at Little Orleans
You need to take it slow
There’s a place called Dollar Bill’s there
Or so I hear

And they’re famous for their breaded clams and beer

Breaded clams and beer
Are two things near and dear
That seafood keeps me thirstin’
And I drink suds until I’m burstin’
Hey barkeep gimme another round

For me and my friend here
We’ll both have them breaded clams and beer

Well, you can get yoreself a sammich
Or the beef stick and some crackers
The country ham and deep fried Spam
Are a couple more lip smackers
It’s all as good as can be
But not as good, I hear
As Ol’ Bill’s famous breaded clams and beer

Them breaded clams and beer
Make me wanna cheer
Them clams are a sight
With a Miller Lite
In a mug that’s nice and clear
Hey barkeep how ’bout another round
For me and my friends here
We’ll all have them breaded clams and beer!

Well, Bill and his posse don’t get around
They spend most of their days in Orleans town
Sittin’ along the Fifteenmile
And grinnin’ from ear to ear
They all like the simple things
Like a cold Budweiser and a plate of wings
But after fishin’ or a-huntin’
You can’t beat breaded clams and beer

OH…them breaded clams and beer
Are a favorite throughout the year
Order a Guinness Stout
The boys’ll throw you out
And you’ll wind up on your rear
Hey! Billy, we’ll have another round
Me and my fishin’ buddies here
Yep, we’ll have them breaded clams and beer

*Dedicated to ol’ Bill and the patrons of Bill’s Place in Little Orleans, Maryland

    The cauliflower looks delish and the beer looks fine, but the clams brother you can have mine LOL.

    I loved, love the tribute poem. Great stuff here and I love the photos!

  2. Hi Missy…thanks for your comment. I suppose it really isn’t an ode at all, but I like the way that sounded in the title. Tom wrote the song and I took the pictures–ha, ha, we make a great team!
