Subject: happy? – Feb 12 (Georgia, bimetallism,+)

Georgia was founded by James Oglethorpe (first landing, at Savannah) 2/12/1733
(And see the Happy! for today)

        I'm going to Georgia, I'm going to roam;
        I'm going to Georgia to make it my home.
        
        I once loved a young man as dear as my life
        And he oft-times did promise to make me his wife.
        
        The promise he fulfilled and he made me his wife;
        And you see what I've come to by believing his lies.
        
        Come all ye fair ladies, take warning by me
        Never cast your affections on a green growing tree.
        
        The leaves they may wither, the flowers may die
        Some young man may fool you as one has fooled I.
        
                "I'm Going to Georgia" collected from Stella Shelton by C Sharp, 1916
                (Folk Songs of the Southern Appalachians)

ALSO:
Congress abolishes bimetallism 2/12/1873 (No folk songs about that. Just a thrillingly interesting fact.)

ALSO:
Superman's radio debut, 2/12/1940 (There is a song about that.)

"Congress abolishes bimetallism 2/12/1873 (No folk songs about that. Just a thrillingly interesting fact.)"

Sure there's a folk song about that.

Gerry, I freely admit that sometimes the connection between the happy? and folk-stuff is pretty thin...but not that thin. I hope. :-)
