Subject: RE: Kemo Kimo?
It's been a while since I last visited Mudcat, but Uncle Jaque pointed this thread out to me, and I thought I'd add my two cents... (The story may sound a little weird, but I think I'll tell it anyway.) A while ago I was listening to his recording of "The Frog In The Well" (played on the fife), and all of a sudden I kept hearing words to it. It was as if I were singing them along in my head, kind of, and the words I "heard" were these:

Oh, I went east and I went west,
Sing song kitty won't you kye me-o
A-looking for the turkey's nest,
Sing song kitty won't you kye me-o

Opossum up a 'simmon tree,
And very shy he looked at me.

A thousand miles beyond the sun
I met the devil with his red coat on.

His coat was red, his pants were blue,
They had a little hole for the tail to stick through.

It's not the only time this has happened (I had a similar experience with "Pretty Saro" and "East Virginia") may think I'm crazy if you like, but I just wanted to share this :-) Has this ever happened to one of you? If yes, I'd love to hear from you!!!
