Thread Name: Songs about farm folk
Subject: RE: Help: Songs about farm folk
The song Grandma's Feather Bed, was mentioned earlier in this thread and is a great song which is still being played in Ireland where a radio station ran a contest for things that were done on Grandma's Feather bed. I know what you're thinking, but according to my source sexual exploits were not allowed. The writer of the song is Jim Connor. John Denver, of course had the most popluar recording of the tune. Jim also recorded the song for RCA and toured with John Denver following the release of Denver's version. There is a site on the internet posting the words to the song and mistakenly lists Denver as the composer.
