Zhenya Tune Req: title of this folk song (21) RE: Tune Req: title of this folk song 23 Sep 18

I can't read abc, so I can't get the melody from that, but I recognized the tune title "Le roi a fait battre tambour" in the last post. If that's the tune the OP is looking for, it's an old French ballad, and I know it originally from an LP by the Quebecois group Éritage. It was also recorded by Cindy Mangsen. A beautiful melody, with a sad story in the lyrics.

Here's a youtube audio posting of the version by Éritage:

Éritage (1982) - Le roi a fait battre tambour
