We had a gig recently (a funeral, oddly enough) where a bunch of young children with their parents were clustered around the band. We started wondering what we could play that the kids might enjoy and figured "Old MacDonald" would be pretty straightforward. Then our banjo player, Patrick Mackey said, "let's make it 'Old MacDonald had a band!'" Well, it was a hit and we've played it at gigs several times since then. We know many of you have young ones who will be out of school soon so we whipped it out during our recording session a couple weeks ago. Add it to the Summer playlist!


Old MacDonald had a band E I E I O.
And in that band he had an accordion E I E I O.
With a _ _ here and a _ _ there.
Here a _, there a _, everywhere a _ _!
