    I think this one can work for both/either a courtship or marriage song, although the courtship is rather devious. I'll try to do another marriage song tomorrow. Written by the great Bill Anderson and by another great but not as well known songwriter, Don Wayne. Wayne also wrote "The Ghost of Jim Bob Wilson" that I did two weeks ago. Recorded by Lefty Frizzell. Trying to sing this song gave me a whole new respect for his vocal talent.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    It appears to be about an uneasy courtship!

    This is a song about the state of marriage, rather than the act of marriage. This was by a wife-husband act called Fleming & John. I was lucky enough to be at the record store one day in the late '90s when the staff played their great album "The Way We Are". I immediately bought the album and played the crap out of it. As far as I know, they never made another album after that.

    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

    I thought about this one for teenagers, but decided meeting the parents for Sunday dinner put it more squarely in the courtship category. Learned a few years ago at the request of a colleague and since in the regular rotation...

    A favorite Dylan song about a sort of courtship.

    Here's a song Jim Lauderdale did with Dr. Ralph Stanley. I did this one a few months ago on my Duke 10 banjo uke, but decided to spare Keith any more of that! lol This time I did it half uke, half Finnish uke, aka mandolin. I'm still pretty new on mandolin, so it's a challenge for me to switch to it mid song, I've gotta kinda thing about what I'm doing on it, so jumping in mid-stream is tough

    And the preacher asked me if I would take this woman to be my awful wedded wife and I answered Pie Glue
    Don't think I will have time to do one on marriage but here is one I have already prepared.
    It is a bit of stream of consciousness uke playing while doing a rant of the Gregory Corso poem Marriage
    Courtship in cemeteries, meeting the parents and needing the bathroom, the wedding, the honeymoon at Niagara.
    Kept awake by children, fatherhood, How poverty and affluence influence marriage. Unmarried at 60 and pee stains
    on your underwear are some of the topics covered.

    Indulge me please... it is a bit of classic beatnik poetry after all :-)
