Subject: Pres. Lincoln's Campaign Waltz/Wreck

I ran across something labelled "President Lincoln's Campaign Waltz" and playing it, discovered it was the same tune as "Wreck on the Highway". Anyone know anything about where this waltz came from -- was it really for Lincoln's Campaign? yours, Peter T.

The Traditional Ballad Index: Wreck on the Highway doesn't help.

For reference, 'Wreck On The Highway' -- Roy Acuff [Realaudio], form The Record Lady's All-Time Country Favorites.

"We'll Sing to Abe Our Song!": Sheet Music about Lincoln, Emancipation, and the Civil War from the Alfred Whital Stern Collection of Lincolniana has Lincoln quadrille by Jas. W. Porter (Philadelphia : W.R. Smith, c1874), which contains a waltz, but it's a different tune.

There's a song LINCOLN AND LIBERTY in the DT, which is a waltz, but the tune is "Rosin the Beau."

Wreck on the Highway and Rosin the Beau are virtually identical tunes, so maybe it is "Lincoln and Liberty" I am looking for information about.

yours, Peter T.

I am away from my pile of melody books, but it was in one of them. There was another one called "Washington and Lee Swing" right beside it in the same book. I should probably start a thread on that one!! yours, Peter T.

Looks like the song is traced back to the 1830's, words to the Lincoln version by someone called Jesse Hutchinson: here!

I just got to know this song from listening to a list of recordings of the Licoln And Liberty but I did not know that the song shares the tune to rosin the beau and think that I can replace the tune to this 1860 song. I find the words of this song to be better and more singalong for the folks I play for.
