Know any good Thanksgiving songs?
I've never even heard a song about Thanksgiving.
Why aren't there more Thanksgiving songs?

Sorta Thanksgiving, one of my holiday favs..
Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago, was on - two years ago on
Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to visit Alice at the
restaurant, but Alice doesn't live in the restaurant, she lives in the
church nearby the restaurant, in the bell-tower, with her husband Ray and
Fasha the dog.

eatdrinkride, thanks for the reply.
I've heard of that song before, but never listened to it until now.
I had Thanksgiving at my Mother's house, and they were listening to Christmas music there. That's why I was wondering about this.
"Over the River and Through the Wood" is a Thanksgiving song, sort of, although some think of it as a winter holiday song in general. Some versions are about T-giving and some are more Christmas and NY oriented.

Assuming you are talking about Alice's Restaurant and not the silly Sandler song....

It's a story within a song and just a fun listen especially if you incorporate yourself into the the time it was written.
For me it always signals the Thanksgiving holiday. That and the movie Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
