GUEST,Beachcomber Tune Req: The Assyrian came down like the wolf... (26) RE: Tune Req: The Assyrian came down like the wolf... 31 Jan 13

Hey, it fits the tune to "Cod Liver Oil" also.
Slowed down a little, the tune has a solemnity that befits it's subject matter.
With a suitable linking instrumental phrase between verses it could sound very well IMHO.
I don't know how to put in a link to that song but I had it on an old 78rpm disc back in "old God's time". I believe it was a Music Hall song from the 30s or around then.

In case I have the wrong title let me add a verse/chorus :

Oh doctor, oh doctor, oh dear doctor John,
Your Cod Liver Oil is so pure and so strong,
I'm afraid of me life she'll go down in the soil,
If me wife don't stop drinkin' that Cod Liver Oil.

Who else knows it ?
