Googled, but couldn't find anything. Lyrics, artist, date? Anyone? Or,
dare I hope, an mp3?

"Here's to you, Amelia Earhart, the wondrous first lady of the air."

That's all I remember. Thanks.

Maybe you need to use a computer when you Google.

Try the words: "Amelia Earhart" and song. It comes right up for me.

The recording everyone knows about is by Red River Dave, and is common
enough that it should be around somewhere.

My "Rise Up Singing" Book lists the Song "Amelia Earhart's Last
Flight," which includes "Happy landings to you Amelia Earhart.
Farewell, first lady of the air." It lists several albums, but I
could find 'em on amazon. I did find "The Yodelling Cowboy Sings
"Amelia Earhart's Last Flight"" by Red River Dave. Here's the link.

Charley Waller and the Country Gentleman recorded it back in the 60s.
His son Randy probably plays it, as do many bluegrass performers paying
tribute to Charley, who died a few years ago.

Here's some tablature:

Mandolin tablature: http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/mandolin-tab/Amelia_Earharts_Last_Flight.htm

Guitar tablature is on: http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/songs-tab/Amelia_Earharts_Last_Flight.htm

I use "Rise Up Singing" for lyrics. A very popular song for old-time
traditional musicians who don't mind creeping into the twentieth
century.

Hope this helps ya.

Here's to Amelia Earhart
First lady of the sky
She never had an airplane
But she sure knew how to fly!

She just ran real fast
And flapped her arms
And took off like a bird
She was our very first woman flyer
Not second, fourth or third!
