Thanks John in B. I appreciate your suggestion, but it seems to complex. I don't have a sound recording software package; nor do I have Real audio, or Cute FTP, or any of the "tools" people use to record, compose, and send music. But for your info here are the complete lyrics:
GRANDMA'S SONG
Gail Davies, 1980

All along the old back road, people stop and they talk at her garden gate.

While inside the family cried all throughout the night,

Because the old woman had passed away.

I loved her so; I knew she was a special one,

A lovely lady and a gentle old soul.

And she taught me to sing an old folk song,

It's got a melody of a 100 years ago.

And she sang "Come-a-hoot, come-a-hoot,
come-a-hi-lo,

Come down the merry string."

I remember it.

Those memories have given me so much;
she wore her age so gracefully.

And there was not a living thing she did not love,

And I pray there's a little of her in me.

Oklahoma in the summer time,

In her rocking chair, she's singing there on the porch.

While the hounds are barking through the hot, black night,

And that old fox well he's a-running like he never has run before.

When you hear the melody, when I play my song,

Every note you hear from me, she's singing right along.

And she sang …………..
(repeat 1st verse.)

Cathy, Dave, and Ed go right into "The Fox" as wonderful medley.
