back in the late 40's , early 50's my mother had a lot of 78 records. one of my favorites was a song that was titled i think ( loralie ), it had the lyrics of--- (loralie loralie , only sad echos answer, an echo that tells me goodbye,) that is all i can really remember. the old 78 record has long been gone now but i would like to try and find one somewhere. i was hoping that you could tell me the title and the artist that recorded it and the year thank you
You might be referring to Marty Robbins' early recording, Lorelai.
Listen to it for free here:
Recorded back in 1951, it might well fit the time frame you're speaking of.
The recording is included in a 3 CD set that I noticed at a reasonable price online.
Thanks for asking,
