Turkey in the Straw

This American Folk Song has been around for a long time. It first became popular back on the 1820s, and remained so through the Civil War. Astute musicologists remember that Minnie Mouse was carrying the sheet music for “Turkey in the Straw” (along with her fiddle) in the movie Steamboat Willie. It’s been recorded by everyone from the U.S. Coast Guard Band to the Wiggles. Tho’ it’s not clear exactly who should get the credit for writing it, one thing’s for sure: Turkey in the Straw is a must have for your Thanksgiving playlist.
