Tim Chesterton Lyr Req: Drowned Lovers / Clyde Water (Kate Rusby) (35) RE: Lyr Req: Drowned Lovers / Clyde Water (Kate Rusby) 15 Sep 10


I'd just like to add my support to those who have expressed their appreciation for the very fine live version of 'Clyde Water' on Nic Jones' 'Game, Set, and Match' CD; to my mind it is far superior to the version on 'Penguin Eggs', which seems far to jolly for the theme.

But I'd be very interested in any information anyone has about the tune(s) to this song. Is the tune sung by Rusby/Jones fairly recent, and if so, who wrote it? And where does Martin Carthy's (different) tune come from?
