I've found before that many songs I knew growing up that I thought were "folk songs" were actually written by Disney personnel. Most notably (before now) was the Pirates of the Caribbean song.
Did you know:
The Ballad of Davy Crocket (Born on a mountain top in Tennessee) was written by Disney Imagineer, George Bruns (who also co-wrote Yo-Ho) with lyrics by American Author Thomas W. Blackburn.
That window on the right is for G. Bruns - I can't believe I don't have a better view of that!
