VINTAGE TALMADGE CAMPAIGN SONGS

I have came upon some vintage campaign songs of Herman and Eugene Talmadge that they used on the respective races for Governor of Georgia. I know it’s not the usual content of articles but I think our readers (especially the history buffs) will get be interested in the old time campaign songs. The songs are pretty folksy and old school songs but I enjoy the songs even more for that. You won’t be able to find these on YouTube so I thought I’d post them on here for anyone that are interested. The beginning two songs are for Eugene Talmadge’s campaigns for Governor of Georgia in 1940 and then 1946, while the rest are Herman’s campaign songs. These all provide some good feels and insite to the good ole days of Georgia. Enjoy.
