Subject: RE: Origins of: History of Go Tell Aunt Rhody
Liland, I have been listening to some of the midis of "Go tell..." that are on google and yahoo and find variance in how "everywhere" is handled. In some, the where is a single note; the extra note seems to be an elaboration. In other words, the two songs become quite similar. There is no reason to relate the two songs, both are simple and easily duplicated unintentionally- as in the case of Rousseau's melody.
