Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Rose of Allendale
Subject: RE: rose of allendale
You can see sheet music at  The Lester Levy Sheet Music Collection,  but that's the original song rather than the Copper Family adaptation, which is probably what you want.  Barry Taylor has a midi arrangement of the "folk processed" version at  Taylor's Traditional Tunebook: Scottish Tunes  (though it's actually an English song).

If you save the midi to disk, you can then either use it as accompaniment or get somebody with midi-editing software to turn it into staff notation for you.  If it's just the melody line you need (most on the web were made by ear from recordings by a number of different people, so they vary a bit), you can see it at  J C's Tunefinder  (search for rose of allandale and select the "gif" option) or at  Yet another Digital Tradition:

Rose of Allandale.
