May you have God's cooperation

.....and so on. She wasn't talking yet, so there would be no objections to being referred to in song as a "weary hobo" or the like.It was all in being being rocked gently to sleep in familiar loving arms by someone making well intentioned, famillar reassuring noises.

If the number of times I've heard "I Can't Help Falling In Love with you" sung while babies were being rocked by their mothers, that IT should be considered a folk song, even if learned from its use in an Elvis movie.

Any song I ever sang while working in my vegetable garden years ago while picking. or weeding was for that period of time, a Folk Song.

Sorry, folks. This was written in transit on a very balky device.....
