Just to show you how old I am I would listen to my Grandpa play the fiddle to songs composed by Steven Foster. He would tell me those were the popular songs that HE remembered and learned when he was a kid. He was born several years after Steven Foster had passed on, in 1863.

The songs? Oh Susanna, Camptown Races, My Old Kentucky Home, Old Dog Tray, and several others. We're talking OLD here!
