Feel Good Friday – Big Rock Candy Mountain

What with all the economic woes of late and talks of another depression, I thought I’d perk us up with a little “ditty” about hobos.

Burl Ives sings about cigarette trees and bulldogs with rubber teeth and lemonade springs and the Big Rock Candy Mountain.

For more Feel Good Friday, visit Newscoma, Sharon Cobb, GoldnI has two offerings, Sista Smiff also has two she’s chosen for you, Hollywood Ron.

  2. Shirley,
    Glad you enjoyed it. As someone born in the mid 60s, I too loved his Christmas songs. I’ll never forget the little animated version of Burl swooshing down the snowy mountain on an electric shaver.
    Or was that just a fever dream?
