This is a Great song by Marc Cohn from his LIVE 04-05 Album. You can catch the song and video on YouTube.
Other songs mentioned by EOGN readers as having a genealogy connection are The Family Tree (video) (by
), and Family Hands (lyrics) (by Mary Chapin Carpenter). Back in 2007, Genea-Musings
posted a list. And, I stumbled across, Let the
Mystery Be (video) (Iris DeMent) ... Venice
What songs do you associate with genealogy and family research?
