Nancy Hanks - Poem & Song
Here is a short poem about Lincoln's mother, written in 1933

The poem was set to music by Katherine Davis around 1941.
I found several recordings on Youtube sung by soprano's, but I didn't care for any of them. This one by Calvin Marsh is a little easier to understand the words. I like the melody, but to me, the style of singing doesn't fit the subject. What do you think?

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
