Thread Name: Songs with lyrics suitable for children
Subject: RE: Songs with lyrics suitable for children
I have heard from numerous parents whose children loved "Pony Man" by Gordon Lightfoot. Years ago, I attended one of his concerts where a woman who had recently lost her son asked him to play it for her. It had been her son's favorite song as a child. You could have heard a pin drop as he explained that to the audience. He had not, by this time, performed the song for several years in public. It was good enough.
