Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Farewell to the Mountains (Davy Crockett)
Thank you very much for the information.    I have been hearing that song in my head almost constantly since the subject arose.   Ernie Ford's rich, booming voice has always been a comfort to me. He is one of my earliest memories (I was 2 when the record was pressed). I read a book that I believe was his autobiography when I was in junior high school. I couldn' t put it down, but now all I remember is a vague comical reference to an outhouse. I remember that it was hilarious, but that's all. Does anyone know the title? I really appreciate the existance of this website.
