Thread Name: Lyr Req: If Wishes Were Fishes (Eric Bogle)
Subject: Do you remember this song?
I'm looking for the title, artist,, words and/or chords (if possible ) of an obscure song. This request probably shouldn't even be on a folk music website, b/c it's so off the beaten path-but if any people in the world can find it, it'd be our Mudcats.
I am looking for a song that has the line
"I wish I was young again" and also
"If wishes were fishes."
I only heard it played one place- at the beginning of the Lynn Samuelsradio show when she was on WBAI years (and years and yearslol) ago.I guess in the eighties, maybe even the seventies. I always liked that song and wouldn't mind playing it again, but can't find a way to trace it.
