rich r Lyr Add: The Rich Lady from Over the Sea (15) RE: LYR ADD: The Rich Lady from Over the Sea 24 Jan 99


This song is also known by the title "Revolutionary Tea" A version of it can be found on an album recorded by a group called Yankee Tunesmiths (1975, Old North Bridge Records) . The album was called oddly enough "Revolutionary Tea" The members of the Yankee Tunesmiths are/were : Tony Saletan who had a PBS TV series called Let's All Sing, Irene Saletan who once recorded an album "Bowling Green" with her sister Ellen as the Kossoy Sisters, Paul Cole a noted Boston singer, fife & drum player, collector & reprinter of revolutionary era ballads & broadsides. Oh, one more little thing, Revolutionary Tea is in the DT, albeit with the line "So she ordered her daughter to pay her a tax of three pence a pound on the tea" severely garbled.
