Thread Name: Origins: Colorado Trail
Subject: RE: Origins: Colorado Trail
These verses remind me of-

Sweetest li'l feller
Ev'rybody knows;
Dunno what to call him,
But he mighty lak' a rose.
Eyes like a morning star
Cheeks like a rose
Laura was a pretty girl
God almighty knows.

First verse from "Mighty Lak' a Rose," 1.
Frank L. Stanton, text, Ethelbert Nevin, music.
John Church Co., 1901.
Second verse from "Colorado Trail." Resemblance coincidental (I think).
