Onion John-- music for the eponymous story

Story Behind The Song

just one of those things... and it reminded me of a story i read when i was young... the peoples's faces just always appear when i hear this song...

Song Description

Get the book "Onion John" and read it. It's a Newbury Prize-winning book, and I wish someone would make it into a movie for screen or television...and use this song, of course! That book inspired this song from down deep.

Song Length 2:53 Genre Folk - Rural, World - African
Tempo Slow (71 - 90) Mood Content, Affable
Era 2000 and later

hey--this is really neat--i love it-great flute playing--if that is what it is--could be a keyboard--anyway--i like it

Very Lively and Catchy tune.
