Lorraine songs to the tune of Star of the County Down (75* d) RE: Star of the County Down 18 Feb 98


"My Dearest Dear" (The time has come my dearest dear when you and I must part -but you'll never know the tears and woes of my poor breaking heart)uses that tune with a slightly different rhythmn- I understand. It's a wonderful tune and song I learned it by listening to a Betty Smith album The liner notes I believe credited to the Jean Richie family. But its been a long time and the album was borrowed. A Child ballad also uses this tune but which I can't recall. Perhaps someone else will remind me. Thanks-Lorraine
