    tribute song to her, because of the great similarities between her Mom's voice and Rosemary Clooney's. A great song, by Kate Campbell, entitled "Rosemary."

    Her voice was the first I knew
    She always liked popular tunes
    You know she’s from Kentucky too
    My mother sings
    Sounds like to me
    Rosemary Clooney
    Can’t miss the start of the race
    I wanna hear the song they play
    I think of her on Derby Day
    My mother sings
    Sounds like to me
    Rosemary Clooney
    Smooth as silk
    Rich and deep
    With just a hint
    Of Whiskey
    Her voice was the first I knew
    She really could play those St. Louis Blues
    And you’d know if you heard her croon
    My mother sings
    Or could it be Rosemary sounds
    Like my mother Sue

    I would do a YouTube link, but I am not finding it among her songs posted there.
