Much thanks!

Thank you.

Do you know any modern ones?

I'm sorry -- but I'm not familiar with current popular songs. But -- you can Google the names of some and add song history to your search term.


thanks

Niel Young wrote "Southern Man" And as a reprise to it his friend, Lynard Skynard wrote Sweet Home Alabama. they even performed them together in concert.
