Here’s a couple of songs from my upcoming concert tour to help you beat the mid-week and mid-winter blahs. Enjoy!
“Beautiful Ohio” was originally written as a waltz, and then the original lyrics were written in 1918. These lyrics were about two people in love admiring the nature and beauty of Ohio. The song became so popular over the ages that the State of Ohio made it their official state song in 1969. In 1989, the original lyrics were re-written to sound more patriotic for the state.
I’ll be performing the original lyrics when I sing it on the road this year. Here’s a great old recording sung by Henry Burr in 1919:
“In My Merry Oldsmobile” is one of those songs that you probably know and can sing along with me right now without the music. It was originally written in 1905, and it has become one of the most popular automobile songs of all time.
My concerts won’t just be me singing all of the time. I’ll have a few songs that you all will be hopefully singing along with me. This song is one of those songs. Here’s your chance to practice this song before the concert-just follow the bouncing ball!
