Sarah's song- John Kelly
#6
I really, really can't take this tune seriously.


Code:
X:1
T:She Was Poor But he Was Honest
C:ed. David Wykes
S:Aline Waites and Robin Hunter: The Illustrated Victorian Songbook [1984]
M:3/4
L:1/8
K:D %Transposed from Eb
Ad|f3 d ed|cB3 b_b|a3 efg|f4
Ad|f3 d ed|cB3 b_b|a3 egf|d4:|



Code:
X:2
T:Sarah's Song (first part)
C:Phil Cunningham (or so he says)
M:3/4
L:1/8
K:D
A f>g|f3 A d>c|cB2 B g>f|e3    d ef |A3
A f>g|f3 A d>c|cB2 B gB |c3 [1 d e>f|d3:|\
                            [2 d e>d|d3||

We can credit Cunningham with the variation that comprises the second part, but NOT the main idea.

Given his backstory for it, I doubt Sarah ought to feel flattered.  A very small sample:

Weirdly, it seems to have started out as a parody of a poem by Longfellow:
