Paul Stamler songs to the tune of Star of the County Down (75* d) Star of the County Down 18 Feb 98


Hey, folks: How many songs do you know that use the tune "Star of the County Down", aka "Dives and Lazarus"? I've thought about doing a radio show, or at least a segment of one, devoted to these songs, inspired by the realization that "The Blackest Crow", on the Bruce Molsky CD "Lost Boy", is yet another variation on this grand tune. Offhand, I can think of Dominic Behan's "Crooked Jack", and "The Banks of Newfoundland", "Van Dieman's Land" and of course "Dives and Lazarus", all traditional. Others?

Peace. Paul
