Homeskoolin’ Bonus, “George F. Root”

Chapters
00:00 - Nice beautiful, slow version of song


Notes
A little Homeskoolin style adaptation of “Battle Cry Of Freedom”….or “Rally Round The Flag”…a song that actually was used by BOTH sides during the Civil War at various times….as a songwriter, that’s when you know you got a hit right there.
I learned of this song as a wee lad through a couple heroes of mine...Tom Britt and Ry Cooder.
