Michael S Chords: Sham-a-Ling-Dong-Ding (Jesse Winchester) (24) jesse winchester song?? 12 Dec 07


I hope someone can help. At the 2007 International Folk Alliance Conference, Jesse Winchester received an award. Following his acceptance speech he sang a beautiful, slow- tempo song that I have never heard anywhere else. As I recall, it was about an older couple dancing to or merely recalling the songs of their youth. The chorus said something about the couple singing the phrase sham ba la la la (or some such thing) as they reminisced.

Does anyone know the name of this song, if it's recorded, and/or on what recording?

I have looked at Jesse's official website, which provides lyrics from 10 albums released through 1999. No luck there.

Anyone? Thanks all.
