There's a song I know that I just call "Figure it Out." Michael Cooney sings it, and it begins "Once there was a man named Einstein, who tried hard to figure it out..."

I believe someone told me once it was by someone named Ginny Cummings, but I want to confirm this so I give proper credit when I sing it. Anybody know?

I thought I'd just post to this again to boost it up on the list, 'cuz I'm still curious about authorship of this song. Any takers?...

Hi, Chris. I went looking for this song for you and found a great site which I started a thread on, the FolkLib Index one. Anyway, I saw a discography on there for Michael Cooney, but none of the titles looked likely to me, but I also haven't heard the song.

I noticed that he has done a lot on Folk Legacy. Have you asked Sandy Paton whether he knows this? I'll bet he could point you in the right direction if he doesn't know it. You can send him a personal message here or go to the Folk Legacy Records website, which, if I remember right, is www.folklegacy.com.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thanks, Kat --

I've not been in touch w/Sandy lately -- good idea. How do I send a personal message via mudcat?

Go to the Quick Links, pull down the menu, choose Send A Personal Message, hit Go, then, when you get there, type in Sandy Paton and hit go, then click on his name & that will give you a message box, OR click on Personal Pages at the top on the menu bar of Mudcat, when you get to your personal page, look towards the bottom and choose Send A Personal Message. Just like posting to a thread.

Good luck,

I thought it was Genny Haley from the Bay Area. I may be wrong.

Nope, it's my old friend GINNY CLEMMENS. She was a folksinger in Chicago for many years and taught banjo and guitar at the Old Town School of Folk Music there.------ Later on, Ginny moved to Maui and lived there until she was sadly killed in a traffic accident.

I'm certain there is a obit thread here for Ginny.

It's very nice to have her gentleness brought back into memory focus again. There is a photo of Ginny Clemmens at my "Art's Place" photo website that BKLick amazingly created at his own web site.

Well, I just searched for Ginny's photo in my collection and could not find it. Then I did find it---but I had spelled her first name with an "i" at the end. I am not cure,now, which is correct, but I think it was spelled Ginny -- with a "y"

I just added a comment to that photo, so if you go to the "Last Comments" feature of the website, there Ginny will be.
