GUEST,Friend Lyr Req: Hurricane (Leon Everett) (19) RE: Lyr Req: Hurricane (Leon Everett) 12 Sep 05

Some really good info on songs here...just wondered if anyone knows the history of Lakes of Ponchartrain. It's going to be sung at a concert to raise funds for Katrina victims and the question of it's origins were raised.
The furthest back I can get for sure is it being in England in 1969 and a theory that it was brought back there by soldiers of the war of 1812 but the reference to railroad in the song are said to make that unlikely.

Thanks everyone and God Bless!
