Songs About Lincoln
Young Abe Lincoln by Johnny Horton.

You may be familiar with him.
He sang "The Battle of New Orleans", Sink the Bismark, North to Alaska and several others. He was married to the widow of Hank Williams.

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

I know all those songs. He was a great artist. But I didn’t know he was married to the widow of Hank Williams. Nice fun fact!

RE: Songs About Lincoln
Have you seen this little tune from the outdoor drama YOUNG ABE LINCOLN.
It was always one of my favorite high spirited songs. And to think, they performed this during the high temperatures and humidity of Southern Indiana summers!

I dont think this one has been mentioned on the forum. It might not be actually about Lincoln the man, but it does tug on the heart. well it does for me. And I'm no socialist.

RE: Songs About Lincoln
Thanks for that post. The comments helped me understand what the song was about. Over here they don't teach American History in the public schools as much as they used to, especially events of the 20th century. European and world history is almost non-existent in public schools.
