Subject: RE: Origins: Lady Mary / Palace Grand / The Sad Song
Jim, that is a great, great find. The origins of this song have been a great puzzlement to a great many scholars and musicians.

I recently did some research of my own, and was able to find the name of the person that May Kennedy McCord learned it from. It was on an interview tape that she had made years ago.

I made at least a moderate search at the time, but was unable to trace it any further than that.

Thank You so much. Dale
