Thread Name: Lyr Req: Ole Swenson (parody of Davy Crockett)
Subject: Davy Crockett parody
I'm looking for the lyrics to a "Ballad of Davy Crockett" parody, the "Ballad of Ole Swenson". He was, of course, "A-Born in Minnesota where there's lots and lots of trees" and was "tending the bar, when he was only three", but I can't remember the rest. I beleive it was recorded (a long time ago) by Jorgy Jorgensen (spelling is mine and probably incorrect). I checked the DT and found the "Tonya Harding" version, but so far nothing for us Wisconsinites to sing across the river at our western neighbors. Any help is appreciated...Thanks!
