dulcimer Lyr Req: Driftwood on the River (Ernest Tubb) (6) Driftwood on the River 13 Sep 00


I was told that this song is based on an old Scottish or Irish folk song. I can only find that it was written by Ernest Tubb. This doesn't mean he didn't borrow elements from Scottish/Irish tradition, but I would question any direct connection. Any corroboration of the source of this tune?
