    Shootah

    For some reason the name Scott McKenzie comes to mind, but regardless of exactly who sung it...it is a beuatiful song that has always drawn me into listening to it with appreciation.

    Thanks Shootah...You are correct. Scott sang it. I can actually remember where I was when I first heard it about 40 years ago.
    Shootah

    Amazing how many memories just the mention of some of these songs bring back!

    Do you all remember the good old 8 track. I still have some Neil Young and Elvis on 8 track. My grandmother gave me a car that had an 8 track in it - it was a peach. I finally had to get rid of the old gal when I moved overseas. The car, not my grandmother) LOL

    City of New Orleans, by Arlo Guthrie
    Shootah

    I have to correct something I accidently overlooked, as Arlo Guthrie was responsible for a lot of well known music...but this is one of the more memorable songs of his that came to mind.
