Thread Name: Lyr Req: Rory Get Your Dory (Eddie LeGere)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Rory get the dory... Song or ditty?
Well, well, well, well. Just got off the phone with the man himself. Eddie LeGere lives in St. Catherine's Ontario and still does a little performing. He said he is 81 plus. He confirmed that he indeed wrote the song and that he would send me a c/d if I'd like. I told him to send it and include the cost so I can pay. He refused but I insisted. He is originally from Joggins Nova Scotia and has been away for about 30 years. He still goes back though. He then asked to hold tight as he would play the song for me. So after a few minutes he turned on his player and I caught some of it while he spoke. I asked him as to why the words could not be found on the Internet and he said he wouldn't know anything about that because he has no computer. Waste of time. I asked him if it would be alright to sing his song. he laughed and said that was why he wrote it. Stupid question I guess.
When I receive the c/d. I will call him back and ask if I can write the words down and show it to other people. I will also try and get to find out if it is copyrighted as Charley has suggested.
Thanks Kat for starting this thread and all the folks who have contributed.
