The Streets of Laredo

Last fall we learned about poetry and one day’s topic was ballads. So, one clear and beautiful morning, I played them “The Streets of Laredo” and the whole time Marty Robbins was crooning, one of my when-hell-freezes-over-he’ll-like-country-music students sang along. He’d never heard the song before, but man, he followed the tune and even emoted a little. It was pretty fantastic!
