Thread Name: Lyr Add: Kemo Kimo (from Ed McCurdy)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Ed McCurdy's Kemo Kimo
I have updated some of the information on a page linked to from the one that Metchosin mentioned. As I note there, it is pretty much a monologue by me, but I think you'll find a lot about the song there. The original sheet music is available from the Library of Congress. Rather than point you directly there, I will give you the link to their American Memory search engine, which will do you more good in the long run ~~ do some exploring! http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/mdbquery.html Enter the term keemo kimo, and set it for exact phrase, and you'll get TWO links to the sheet music for Keemo Kimo Geo Christy and Wood's celebrated banjo song ~~ it doesn't matter which one you use.
