Oh Sweet Lorraine (featuring Jacob Colgan & Fred Stobaugh)

Hearing this song really hits home to ones humanity. A love story between a man and his wife for 73 years. Fred Stobaugh, from Peoria, Ill., wrote the lyrics to what he called "Oh Sweet Lorraine" after his 91-year-old wife died last April. The couple met in 1938 and were married for 73 years.

When Green Shoe Studio out of East Peoria, Illinois hosted a singer-songwriting contest they never could have imagined the mailed-in contribution by 96-year-old Fred Stobaugh. A song he penned for his late wife of 73 years entitled "Oh Sweet Lorraine" won their hearts and the contest and has since gone on to become a viral hit that has touched the millions who've come across his story.

Studio owner Jacob Colgen explains in, "A Letter from Fred," a brief documentary put together about the song, how he received it and why he chose to have it produced and performed by professional musicians:

"What made Fred's entry so special to us was, well for one, it's an online singer-songwriter contest. People are supposed to upload their videos but instead of a video we received a very large manila envelope entitled "Green Shoe Studio Singer-Songwriter Contest." I was excited to see what it was and opened it up and lo and behold it was a letter from a 96-year-old man who said that I've written a song for my wife."

A Letter from Fred:

"As I'm reading through the letter I begin to realize that his wife had passed away just a month earlier. And so having knowing that, I started reading through the song and he titled it "Oh Sweet Lorraine" and listening to the lyrics and the passion behind the lyrics and the letter he sent us... It was just so heartwarming.

Absolutely beautiful. It must have been written for my husband and me--absolutely perfect. Everyone should listen to this recording and purchase it if possible. Sweet Lorraine is a wonderful listening experience. It causes me to visualize all of our great memories.

We might think 75 years is a long time. But in reality, 75 years is gone in the blink of an eye. What a wonderful love story.

Saw this post on FB about the story behind the song...tear jerker, but oh so touching!!! To find a love like that in your lifetime...PRICELESS! Definitely need to see the video story to know the history and reason why this song was produced. Hats off to all involved in the making of this wonderful tribute!

A very meaning song if you know the backstory to this melody. People should consider purchasing the song just to help the old man who inspired the song a bit.
