Folk songs...... I'm of the Peter, Paul and Mary generation so there are a lot of folk songs from that period I like. I also have a CD of Newfoundland folk songs that is great.

Most of the folk songs I learned when I was young were classical music. Dad is a musician and I grew up listening to both classical and jazz. I also studied classical guitar for about 10 years and a lot of that music was considered folk songs, but they were written by long dead classical guitar players.

I know I must have learned something in elementary school.....but can only think of Jimmy Crack Corn, Waltzing Matilda, and something about marching to Pretoria. Name some others you learned in school, maybe that will jog my lackluster memory.
I wanted to be a pirate, but I couldn't grow a beard and rum makes me giggle.
