Lesley N. Folk Music and Political Campaigns (30) RE: Folk Music and Political Campaigns 03 Oct 99


Jefferson and Liberty was set to the tune "Gooby-O" - an old Irish reel - words by Robert Treat Paine, Jr. Lincoln and Liberty was set to Rosin the Beau - words by Jefferson Hutchinson.

This is from Songs People Vote By - which I can't recommend enough - a FASCINATING resource I found through bibliofind. (And the information is in the DT too - as are the lyrics to both!)

Nixon had a campaign song to the tune Merrily We Roll Along??? And Click with Dick -

Come on an click with Dick,
the one that none can lick... He's the mad to lead the USA
In Dick we have the one,
Who turly gets things done,
Ev'ry time he has his say.
He's a man of peace and reason
For the job in ev'ry season
And he knows how to fight,
When he is in the fight,
So let's all click with Dick.

Words and music by Olivia Hoffman, George Stork and Clarence Fuhrman.
