Richard Tune Req: Father, Come Home (7) RE: Father, Come Home 28 Nov 97


The tune was used for a parody called "Mary, Come Home" , wherein a white miner tries to entice a native woman to come home with him to his cabin on the sleigh, with liquor as the lure. There ines of Chinook language in it. I think we have managed to figure out who the two women in the song actually were. It was written about 1868.
