GUEST,Vixen @ work Songs you thought were trad (155* d) Songs you thought were trad 23 Nov 04

This topic has come up before in a variety of threads. I thought it might be useful to see if we could compile a list in one place.

So, what songs did you think were oldies from the distant and/or undocumentable folk tradition that turned out to be recently composed?

Two that I know were mentioned in past threads:

Mairi's Wedding
Ook Pik

Red Clay Halo by Welch/Rawlings is the song that made me start the thread.
Roseville Fair and Ole Jack by Bill Staines are two more that come to mind.
