The Top Ten
Watch it, now. Gettin' a bit close to acknowledging Scots-Irish folk music. Careful. Might even start (gasp! ) liking it;).
I wonder this song is just here. It's better than other ones up there. - waldo
A song about the South by an arrogant Canadian hippie who doesn't know the first thing about squat. Lynyrd Skynyrd called it plain: "Southern man don't need him around, anyhow." Neither does any other real American.
Testically, Texas is the West, 'cept for the eastern part, which is the South. Simple, right? :)).
"...And we fought the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.
We fired our guns but the British kept a-comin'; there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago. We fired once more and they began to runnin' on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico."
Cute. - Britgirl
From the pen of Johnny Mercer and the piano of Hoagy Carmichael. 'Nuther good version by Geoff Muldaur and Amos Garrett off "Sweet Potatoes."
This is so cute! It was also sung by Oliver Hardy in the L&H film, Pardon Us. I think... - Britgirl
Geoff & Amos's version...Just finished listening to it whilst watching the blinds sway gently in the breeze of the open window. It's nice. Just really really nice... *sigh* it doesn't feel like I'm in the dentist's waiting room at all! :). - Britgirl
"Good morning America how are you? Say don't you know me? I'm your native son. I'm on the train they call the city of New Orleans and I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done."...
Also by Willie Nelson but Guthrie sings it with a tone of nostalgia and warmth in his voice, which I find extremely comforting. - Britgirl
