fogie Lyr Req: songs of parting (52* d) Lyr Req: songs of parting 30 Nov 06

Come all ye! I'm looking for a selection of songs of this ilk, and I won't restrict it to trad folk. I was thinking of such songs as THE PARTING GLASS and ALONG THE ROADS OF TIME and others sprang to mind such as AULD LANG SYNE, LOCH LOMOND as well as (stretching it a bit) LONG MAY YOU RUN -Neil Young, and Abba's WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE, although THE WAY OLD FRIENDS DO is more emotionally akin to the original entries. There's GOODBYE TO BARN AND STACK AND TREE from A Shropshire Lad, and ADIEU SWEET LOVELY NANCY. I don't want the songs to be addressed to dead partners, both individuals have to be alive, and I'm not looking for every pop/soul/tamla hit unless it has a sweet melancholy which I think is found in the above examples. Adieu and luck be with ye!
