Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Horse called Napoleon
Subject: RE: Req/ADD: Horse called Napoleon
My Grandfather used to sing this song to me as he rocked me in his rocking chair here in Logan, Utah. I have fond memories of those occasions. The lyrics which matt in provo, ut posted are the exact lyrics that I remember my Grandfather singing except we always thought the last two stanzas were from a different song and that he would sing them with the same tune. Perhaps not, now that I see Matt's post. I google searched the title "Horse named Napoleon" and found a YouTube video of a father singing this song to his son on his lap. The tune was the same that I recall Grandpa singing. Does anyone else have information on what seems to be this folk song?
