georgeward Robert Schmertz - songs and information? (48) RE: Robert Schmertz - songs and information? 21 Aug 08

To the list of Schmertz's songs, add the one that begins "In 1763 George Washington came to th Ohio". Title might be "The Forks of the Ohio" or something similar.

I believe "The Locktender's Lament" that Burl Ives recorded is Schmertz also. Sure sounds like him. [ "Oh, I'm the locktender at lock number ten / I whistle and sing every now and again."]

There's more about Bob Schmertz online, though not enough. And some links in the Queen Anne Front thread linked at the head of this one.
