    Go to YouTube and select "Judith Durham-Morningtown Ride".

    It's so sweet and melodic, ideal for 2 to 5-year-olds. (Strum your guitar along...it's in the key of G.)

    Judith is from the Australian folk group "The Seekers", popular in the '60's.

    No, Ken...that's not the one I wanted you to select!

    The one I referred to has the children running, boarding, and riding on an old steam train.

    Type in "Judith Durham Morningtown Ride", it's the one at the TOP of the page!

    None of other others versions are nearly as good.

    Feel free to embed the one you want. The instructions can be found here. Actually, the one I added "was" the one at the top of the page. The order isn't always the same.

    Not to be too corrective, but proper etiquette calls for “thank you” and is so much friendlier than a dressing down for one’s efforts such as; Thankyou for loading that one for me, Ken. I actually thought the one at the top of the page with Judith Durham was a little better though because of the children. Could you please help me load that one up too?
    See? Easy and friendly too.

    Now, as to my views on both versions, I personally like them both and for different reasons. Thank you for posting the lead in.

    OK, Bobby...you're Right!

    It's just that Ken did not load the version of Morningtown Ride that I wanted all on the Forum to enjoy!

    I thank everyone for their instructions for doing this myself, but I have failed every time I tried it!

    So I'm asking...no, I'm BEGGING for others to load this for me, PLEEEASE!

    And I apologize to you, Ken...I should have thanked you.

    Ken, I DON'T KNOW HOW to copy the URL and embed it into the Senior Forum, and I DON'T KNOW HOW to paste anything, and I DON'T KNOW what a media icon looks like either!

    I'm not shouting...I'm just trying to emphasize my ignorance of accomplishing what are probably simple instructions!

    Hal, age 82.

    Then don't criticize those trying to help you.

    Listen carefully to me Young master Hal....

    This is as simple as it gets..


    Go to youtube and select the music you want to post...

    At the top of the page hover your Mouse over the ''URL'' which starts www. you tube ( do not click on my red link it's for illustration purposes only)

    Left click your mouse, and the URL will highlight , then right click and a drop down box will appear

    Left click on the word ''copy'' it will highlight

    Come to the forum and in the reply box, simply ''right click your mouse and Click ''Paste'' ...

    Your link will appear...don't forget to press send as usual... ( incidentally FYI, what might be the first song in a youtube list for you would not necessarily be the same for everyone''... in fact it's unlikely

    Don, I already apologized to Ken, so your scolding wasn't really necessary.

    One of my favourite songs of the seekers who were very popular here in the 60's and certainly not ''hip'...but folksy .. is this one

    Holly, right off the bat I don't know what or where the "URL"is on my page. Is it at the top of the video or the top of my screen? Once I find the URL, I'll hopefully be able to proceed with your instructions.

    In the meantime, THANK YOU for the train version of Morningtown Ride!

    Just FYI... the URL of any page is its ''address''' always starting with www ... so if you look at the top of this page it will say www.seniorsonly.club

    You will find the URL always near the top of any internet page you're looking at..
