scout4song Lyr Req: Froggie Went A-Courting (22) RE: Lyr Req: Froggie Went A-Courting 30 Nov 09

All I can say from spending some time clicking around on all of these post threads is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU :^) My late mother and grandmother used to sing this song to me when I was a child. They were both from Kentucky and knew all kinds of folk songs. When they both developed Alzheimers Disease, about 10 years apart, singing songs was the one thing that always made them happy, no matter how scary "the long goodbye" of Alzheimers became for them (and me.)

If I had the dough, I'd invest in sending folk singers 'round to Alzheimers wards to sing songs to the folks so they'd have something they could participate in or, at least, to smile at.

I can't wait to record my own version of this.
God Bless All of You who took the time to do these posts!
