Old Song From The 1940’s Asks ‘Why Oh Why Did I Ever Leave Wyoming’
While going about my day to day duties I stumbled across this song on YouTube from the 1940's. I just couldn't believe how catchy the tune was, and how accurate the lyrics were when describing my home state.
Jerry Colonna is the genius behind this wonderful song called "Why Oh Why Did I Ever Leave Wyoming"
After listening to this, and that gorgeous picture you see above. I was curious if there were any other songs from that time period to give a glimpse into how life was back then. Which is when I discovered a band called The Sons Of The Pioneers and their song "Somewhere In Old Wyoming" which was actually recorded 10 years previous to "Why Oh Why Did I Ever Leave Wyoming."
In my opinion, They are both great songs and give you a look at how times have changed and in some way how they've stayed the same.
