Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Old Granite State (Campaign Song
Well, it seems related and likely descended from The Old Granite State of the Hutchinson Family which is right here in our own DigiTrad. The notes also indicate that they sang it for President Tyler at the White House in 1844. Last year, I entered the lyrics for Abby Hutchinson's Kind Words Can Never Die. You might want to check into that thread for more information about New Hampshire's Hutchinson Family, possibly the best known singing group of the 19th century.
