1. Back by popular demand (someone asked about sing alongs) and at popular prices (free) here’s a singalong: Two very old songs, but very good ones. images-1Alexander’s Ragtime Band by Irving Berlin and Georgia On My Mind by Hoagie Carmichael.

      Played today not by Hoagie (which reminds me it’s almost lunchtime) but by yours truly. So please sing along.
    2. Alexander’s Ragtime Band
    3. Come on and hear, come on and hear
      Alexander’s Ragtime Band
      Come on and hear, come on and hear
      The best band in the land
      They can play a bugle call
      Like you never heard before
      So natural that you want to go to war
      It’s just the bestest band what am
      Come on along, come on along
      Let me take you by the hand
      To the man, to meet the man
      Who’s the leader of the band
      And if you want to hear that Swanee River
      Played in a ragtime
      Come on and hear, come on and hear
      Come on and hear, come on and hear
      Come on and hear that
      Alexander’s Ragtime Band

Georgia On My Mind

Georgia, Georgia,
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
I said Georgia
Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
I said Georgia,
Ooh Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
Georgia, Georgia,
No peace, no peace I find
Just this old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
I said just an old sweet song,
Keeps Georgia on my mind
