The Gasoline Gypsies

The Norther and the Frogs

A tall tale reported in American Folk Tales and Songs, by Richard Chase. As a storyteller should, I've embellished it a bit. Well OK, all that's really left is the punchline.

Abdul Abulbul Amir

Possibly the first song I ever learned, off an old 78rpm record of my father's, by a 1930s radio singer named Frank Crummit. Written by an Irish music hall performer named Percy French as a satire on the Crimean War, and still carries a message today. Percy French played the banjo and wrote and sang funny topical songs. Frank Crummit played the guitar and wrote and sang funny topical songs. I'm just carrying on a cultural tradition.

The Cedar Forest

During the Vietnam era I introduced this as a cautionary tale for anyone thinking of invading Canada.

A Song for Just After Christmas

I wrote this to do in church, but the programs had alreadey been printed so I couldn't get it in. I sang it for a few people in January and they said "Why didn't you do that at Christmas?" Hence the title, and perhaps this is something we shouldn't be thinking about while the official observance is going on anyway.
