My daughter's fourth-grade class is now focusing on the Southeast for the states and capitals. The way it works in her class is that students get to put in for their top-three choices. She requested 1) Alabama, 2) Mississippi, and 3) Virginia.
She got her third choice, and in the midst of doing research about the state, we found out that the state song of Virginia is "Carry Me Back to Virginia." Interestingly enough, the new album by Old Crow Medicine Show (OCMS) is titled Carry Me Back, and the lead song is possibly a reformulation of the state song.
So today I offer OCMS's "Carry Me Back" along with "Bobcat Tracks" from Big Iron World.
