Internet Miracles

Over the weekend I watched the Sean Penn movie version of the Robert Penn Warren's novel (All the King's Men).  Warren's book has been put to celluloid twice (once in 1949 with Broderick Crawford and then again in 2006 with Sean Penn).  It is a powerful statement of potential for corruption.   But it is also not historically accurate about the character Warren was writing about Huey Long. (Father of Russell Long)

Long was a populist of the first order and had a campaign song called Every Man a King (in that time period there were a lot of popular ditties associated with politicians).  I wondered if there is an extant recording of Long singing that song.  And indeed one short search and I found it.
