FreddyHeadey Folklore: significance of huckleberries (39) RE: Folklore: significance of huckleberries 26 Aug 19


"The line, "My huckleberry friend," is often thought to be a reference to Huckleberry Finn, a character in Mark Twain's book Tom Sawyer.
However, in his autobiography, Johnny Mercer said it was in reference to a childhood friend of his. He used to pick huckleberries with him down by a lazy river near his home in Georgia."
