Vixen Origins: Mountain/Life's Railway/road, Vacant Cha (6) Origins: Mountain/Life's Railway/road, Vacant Cha 23 Jun 09


D'Cats--

Reynaud and I are preparing for the Kids' Academy at Podunk BGF at the end of July (Festival info...) and I've gotten confused.

I want to locate abc notation for Life is Like a Mountain RR. According to some (reputable) sources, the following songs share the same melody: Vacant Chair, Life's Railway (or Railroad) to Heaven, and Life is Like a Mountain Railway (or Railroad).

So now my ignorance kicks in: of the 3 songs, I have only heard the last one. The MIDI of Vacant Chair in the DT does not sound at all like the MIDI of Life's Railway to Heaven in the DT. The words of Life's Railway to Heaven match the words of Life is Like a Mountain Railroad.

The only abc notation I've been able to locate (so far) is for Vacant Chair, and it's subtitled Life's Railway to Heaven. However, since the MIDI files in the DT for these two tunes don't (to my hearing aids) sound the same (and actually have different tune file names), I need HELP!

Any clarification is gratefully appreciated!
