    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....

    The reason I associate this song with Thanksgiving is each year a local radio staion (KDKB) here in Phoenix would play that song at 11am each and every Thanksgiving. When I became of driving age I would drive to my Grandparents house for Thanksgiving each year while this song played. I loved it. 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.
