GUEST,Jim Ward Origins: The Old Armchair (12) RE: Origins: The Old Armchair 18 Apr 04


"Grandmother's Chair", written and composed in 1880 by John Read, an Englishman who also performed the song in Britain and America. It was later popularised by American, Frank Crumit, who recorded it as "Granny's Old Armchair" around 1920. The song is a parody on the Henry Russell / Eliza Cook parlour ballad, "The Old Armchair", published in 1840
