JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- David "Eli" Grimes owns and operates his own electrical company: Eli's Electrical Services.

But, when he's not fixing things for the hundreds of families he serves around the First Coast, he's busy writing music.

"My heart has always been in singing," Grimes said.

In fact, First Coast News did a story on Eli when he wrote a song for troops fighting overseas.

Now he has written a new song about the town he loves: Jacksonville.

"It's has a little bit of everything in it," he said. "When I see something, I really like to write about it."

Now he's hoping it can become the official...or even unofficial theme song to the River City by The Sea.

"That would be great, really awesome, and it wouldn't hurt my feelings if someone really big wanted to perform it too."
