Thread Name: Country of origin of these songs please!
Subject: RE: Country of orgin of these songs please!
Many of the English and Scottish ballads have histories which stretch into northern Europe - so who knows. No-one has mentioned Midnight on the Water. All I know by that name is a tune which comes for USA - Texas I was told - lovely tune that deserves words.
