Subject: RE: Help: Rodger Young
Thats great! thanks all! Now, I'll tell you a true story. Back during the great war, I heard this song being sung, and, learned it by association. It was one of those songs that peak quickly, then, die out suddenly. Many rears later, I was stationed aboard the USCGC Coos Bay here in Maine. One of my shipmates was from Willard Ohio, and, after I got out of the service, my wife and I went to visit Bob and his wife. Bob was working, so, I had nothing to do. I went out on the back porch with my guitar, and did a few songs to myself. Suddenly, Rodger Young came to mind. I hadn't thought of that one in years, but it crossed my mind, and I started singing it. Across the driveway, I noticed an older couple who came out on their porch, stood listening, and then went back into their house. Later, I mentioned it to Bobs wife, and she told me that Rodger Young was born and raised just a few miles west of where we were. What are the chances of something like that happening?
