Thread Name: Lyr Req: Ole Swenson (parody of Davy Crockett)
Subject: RE: Davy Crockett parody "OLE SWENSON"
Dawn,

Back in the late 50s I was a Boy Scout in Troop 55 in Savannah GA. Our Asst Scoutmaster was Russ Swenson fron Minn. He was stationed in GA in the Air Force. He taught us the song. As I remember it started "Born in Minnesota where the tall Swedes grow." The refrain was "Ole, Ole Swenson King of the great north woods." I think I have the words someplace. I will send them to you if I can find them.
