pastorpest Origin: Red Is the Rose (54* d) RE: Red Is The Rose 15 Mar 00

On Tommy Makem's CD, Songbag, he lists Red Is the Rose as traditional and his note reads, "Learned from the singing of my late mother, Sarah Makem, this favourite is set to the same tune as the lovely Scottish song, Loch Lommand."

I hope there is a scholar out there who can tell us more about the origins of this great melody and two great lyrics.
