Auburn junior pokes fun at SGA elections campaigning with ‘Makin My Way Down The Concourse’ song

You know it’s a problem when people start writing songs about it.

“In one word, chaos,” said Rhett Sosebee. “The concourse on campaign week is chaos.”

To help himself cope with the incessant solicitations for support, Sosebee, an Auburn junior in hotel and restaurant management, wrote “Makin My Way Down The Concourse” (set to Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles”) which he performed to rave reviews last Thursday at the Wesley Foundation’s Coffeehouse event.

“Last Monday, I had this strange, random urge to listen to ‘A Thousand Miles,’” Sosebee said. “I realized I could easily change the words to a song about the concourse during campaign week.”

He asked friend John Andrew Morrow if he could play ‘A Thousand Miles” on the piano. He could. It was a hit.

“It’s all in good fun,” Sosebee said. “It was never anything to bash SGA. The concourse during campaign week is easy to make fun of, and everyone can relate to it.”

Lyrics to ‘Makin My Way Down The Concourse’

Making my way down the concourse
Walking fast
On my way to class
And then I hear it

“Are you supporting anyone for Miss Auburn, SGA President, Vice President or Treasurer.”

Cause I need you
To Check for Chelsea
Ballot Position 4…..

If I walk
Around Foy
Do you think they
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I walk
A thousand miles
Just to avoid the concourse
On Campaign Week

It’s always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

‘Cause I know it’s been like five years or so since the last time we talked but you’re like the last person I haven’t tried
Calling in my contacts and if I’m on the phone with someone when i pass them on the concourse then there is a chance that they won’t talk to me.

‘Cause I need you
to Choose Hughes
She really loves mustaches

If I could stroll
Through the quad
Do you think they
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I walk
A thousand miles
Just to avoid the concourse
On campaign week

” I, I
am best friends with this girl
She is
So awesome and quirky
Here, Here
watch this funny video of her
This is her platform..”

Making my way down the concourse
Walking fast
On my way to class
And no one pesters me

And then I pinch myself
Because this can’t be real
But it’s real
Campaign Week is over

And I still need you
And I still miss you
So please change your profile picture back to yourself now…

If you would have
Just given me a free T-shirt
Maybe then I
Would have voted for you
‘Cause you know I walk
A thousand miles
Just to avoid the concourse

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight
