Thread Name: Lyr Req: Davenport Blues (Jerry Rasmussen)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Davenport Blues, Jerry Rassmussen
I sang this song at a library, many years ago, and a young couple were sitting in the front row with their 7 or 8 year old daughter. After I finished the song, I noticed the little girl lean over and whisper something in her Mother's ear. The Mother than whispered something in her daughter's ear in response, and then they both smiled at me. I asked the Mother if her daughter asked what a davenport is, and the Mother said, "No, she asked what cavorting is."
I laughed and asked her, "And what did you tell her?" She said, "I told her that cavorting was having fun." Everyone got a good laugh out of that, and I think that little girl was especially pleased that she had asked such a funny question...
