......I don't know what I'm doing here, I could be someplace else
Like in Atlanta drinkin' wine, wine, wine
I don't know what I'm doing here, I should be someplace else
Like in Kentucky drinkin' 'shine, 'shine, 'shine......

The song is fairly obscure. Unless you lived in the place it is about.

Riverfront Park. Spokane, WA. Right next to it is Canada Island, hence the Canada reference. '74 World's Fair.

The song is Spokane Motel Blues by Tom T. Hall.

I knew you would come through. Canada Island was actually part of the fair site.
