Genealogue Challenge #142

It's been a while since I posted a challenge, and I thought I'd try something different this time. I've translated the opening lines of a famous song into Soundex code, and then substituted for each word a surname having the same code.

What is the song?

Trask Aho Lloyd Weeks Sawyer
Aiello Tweed Gildersleeve Igo Gillette
Annoot Swayze Banks Aho Souter Toohey Hobein.


theres a lady who's sure
all that glitters is gold
and shes buying a stairway to heaven

Gildersleeve's pattern was the one I used to solve this.


Drew Smith

Stairway to Heaven


Stairway to Heaven.



Yes, Souter Toohey Hobein is Stairway to Heaven. Not to be confused with Huskey Toohey Holloway (Highway to Hell).
