"What is that?" I said.
"It's a Woody Guthrie song, 'I'm Gonna Mail Myself To You.' My music teacher [from four years ago] taught it to me."
So here is a shout out to all those music teachers who teach our kids music that they actually remember four years later. Thank you, elementary music, choir, band, and orchestra teachers!
This song is essentially a love song from Woody to his children, so music teachers:
Happy Valentine's Day!
[Interestingly, one commenter on Youtube said, "I remember singing this in elementary school on Valentine's Day.]
