There may be a lot of people who do songwriting good, but to me there is no one who tops Tom for doing it good consistently.

CORRECTION! He's 3 years and 363 days older than me. That's not so bad.

Tom Paxton is a leading American folk songwriter and set a high water mark for anyone writing songs today. His birthday commemorates years of bringing good songs to everyone. The other night, we sang Ramblin' Boy, a great song after all these years.

Happy Birthday, Tom

Happy birthday Tom.

Here's that song.

Do Ukuleles go to Heaven When they Die?      

D                A7
I took myself a trip to Honolulu
in the moonlight those ukuleles played
I'm gonna have to buy a ukulele
to serenade my Honolulu maid.

Chorus.
        Oh how I love my ukulele
        it really is the apple of my my eye
        I set it on the chair, guess I shouldn't have left it there
        do ukuleles go to heaven when they die?

Now I'm back in Oklahoma
riding on those old Panhandle plains
My girl she stayed in Honolulu
and I play my ukulele and it rains.

Chorus...

At home alone I play my ukulele
I scare the dog and raise hairs on the cat
I left it on the sofa and my brother my big loafer
came sat on it and squashed that sucker flat.

Or was Gordon B born on Tom's Birthday? I think I would have guessed Tom to be the older, but wasn't thinking about it the one time I've seen Gordon live. Anyhow, amen Kendall.

I posted my error a while back but it didn't appear. Gordon was born on Tom's birthday.

I was surprised to see no one posted this giggleful parody that was written for a significant number birthday of Tom Paxton's (don't have the liner notes around to peek) by the parodist nonpariel, Sue Trainor of Hot Soup, friend of Tom. If memory serves, I THINK this was done premiered at an event for Tom held at Wolftrap - don't quote me on that part.

(I DON'T KNOW WHAT WAS) THE LAST THING ON MY MIND

It's a question too late for the asking
I don't know I don't know
In a blink of my eye my thoughts are passing
Where'd they go? Where'd they go?

Chorus:
Thoughts are going away
With no word of farewell
Will there be one idea left behind?
I used to be a genius
But now today I found
I don't know what was the last thing on my mind


As I walk down the hall try to remember
Where I'm bound, where I'm bound
I need to call...where's my Sandwich?
In the Blender
Round and round, round and round....chorus

Gave 'em reasons a plenty for going
This I know this I know
Boone's Farm, Gallo, Jim Beam
Weed a blowing
Why'd I blow? Where'd they go?....chorus

As I like in my bed deep in slumber
I construe, cerebrate anew.
But at my desk I can only sit and wonder
Not a clue, one friggin clue....chorus

On Hot Soup's SOUP HAPPENS album -an altogether splendid album, great for singing along with if one loves female trios with superb taste in song choice.
