  1. Hear That Banjo Ring by Mary Munsey

Lyrics

CHORUS
I want to live like John Hartford--playin’ music with my friends
Some old-time or some Newgrass, hear ‘em pick and watch ‘em grin
Songs that make folks happy watch ‘em dance & hear ‘em sing
Gonna tune up my old fiddle and hear that banjo ring

Lived life, plain & simple wrote songs for Good Old Boys
Streetcars and Rails of Steel His music brought em joy
He grew up in St. Louis a Steamboat Captain true,
Sang about Lorena, played the Mississippi Dew

CHORUS

Goin’ to Work in Tall Buildings told the danger of fortune and fame
He’d rather pilot the old Mississipp than a Steam Powered Aereo Plain
Learning to Smile, Because of You & Natural to be Gone
He left us to remember, the magic of his songs
CHORUS
BRIDGE
I think of this man---a mighty musician a force of nature I find
His music and the memories are Gentle on My Mind

CHORUS
