It is a 1904 tune called 'Come take a trip in my Airship' by George Evans & Ron Shields. The GE commercial uses Johnny Cash's version in it's entirety, which unfortunately only lasts 30 sec.
I have it in my computer in mp3 format.
: I'm looking for the same song. Did you ever get the answer? If not, I'm thinking of contacting GE.
:> Does anyone know the title and artist of the song now airing in a GE (General Electric) commercial... it goes something like 'Come take a trip in my airship...come take a trip round the sun...' It's kinda 'Johnny Cash' style...but not him, I don't think. Please help me before I do something rash!
>> Many thanks*
