Lordy, Poodles, it's the ivory-billed woodpecker! Not quite, but it's American and Bohemian versions of "John Brown's Body Lies A'Mouldering in the Grave"! Most of the songs are only in Czech. Until I spotted "John Brown" I thought it was all Czech, and was wondering why I've been carting it around for four decades. Click on images for a larger view.
Had such fun reading James McBride's The Good Lord Bird about John Brown. Do give it a peruse at your library!
Did you know "Yankee Doodle" has a verse about pancakes and onions?
Closing today with a little patriotic number. Have a good one!
