Thread Name: Midnight On The Water
Subject: RE: Midnight On The Water
Midnight On The Water was composed by Luke Thomasson, around a hundred years ago, or a bit more, and the copyright was held by Benny Thomasson who died about thirty years ago. I suppose it may not be in copyright any more, but who knows. We loved Ron Kavana and he sang his song (far more languorously than on his "Think Like A Hero" album) especially for the Shaws at the best gig I've ever been to in my life, at the Tree Inn Folk Club on 1 October 1993. The song uses the waltz tune alternating with the verses, which have a different melody. I still have a recording of him singing the song that night.
