GUEST,Dick Holdstock Origins: Tone is coming back again (12) Origins: Tone is coming back again 13 Dec 08


Can anyone help me find the origin of the song Tone is Coming Back? The words are the same on all current listings I have found but none tells if it was a broadside ballad, a song actually written by someone shortly after 1798, or 100 years after like many of the popular songs about 1798.

This digital tradition says "This song to a traditional air, has been popular in Ulster since days of the United Irishmen". it doesn't offer anything to back that up.
