Ah Shula I was about to introduce this very song - "The Housewife's Lament" - but was waiting a little bit until it came round to my turn again!
But maybe we can sing it again, with a different tune? I discovered this in Alan Lomax's "Folk Songs of North America", with a very catchy tune that I couldn't get out of my head, once I had sung it through the first time. I went around the house humming it, & tapping the rhythm out on whatever what within reach, until my kids begged for mercy! & I had to stop (but not for long!) If Max will explain how to create & send a Midi file, we can all sing it together.
[I have Music Write but have barely used it ... does anyone know if I can use it for this purpose?]
I did find this song on DT, with a few modern "updated" endings, but I must admit my favourite is the original. I always pause dramatically when I get to "and was buried in ... dirt."
If I get a chance, I'll post the background info that Alan Lomax includes, about the song & about Sarah Price herself.
