A number of the verses in this collection are parodies of songs of various types and were written during my childhood.  These are:

“Ballad of peppy The Pup” was based on Walt Disney’s
“The Ballad of Davy Crockett”, 1955

“Nightly Moon”, was originally written in a slightly different
version as original lyrics for the instrumental hit “Sail on, Silvery Moon”, 1959.

“Saga of Mike Neff” was based on “Don’t Take Your Guns to Town”,
by John R. Cash, 1959

“American Jail”, “When Johnny...”, Lullaby of a Modern Mom”,
“Torn Sleeves”, “Cockles and Mussels” and “Blue Tale Cry”
are either based on or are additions to traditional folk songs.

 “Deck the Halls” is based on the traditional Christmas song.

“Shrill Whistles” is based upon a traditional folk song and also “Chilly Winds” by John Phillips
and John Stewart, 1964.

“True Confessions of Bob Dylan” is based on “With God on Their Side”
by Bob Dylan, 1965.


“Blond-Eyed lady Blues”,  “Blue Tale Cry”, “Buy! Buy!”, “My Hair”, “Oliver Bair” and “True Confessions of Boy Dylan”.
