Lynda Finn Tune Req: Alternative Christmas Song (John Ames) (2) Tune Req: for 'Alternative Christmas Song' 18 Nov 07

I believe that's the actual title. I need a midi or some online version to a song, sung by John Ames which goes:

What can I offer my love so free,
to make his Christmas worthily?
The partridge has flown from our pear tree.
Flown with the summer are the swans and the geese
The milkmaids and drummers would leave him little peace
I've no gold ring and no turtle dove,
so what can I bring to my true love?

He shall have all I can best afford,
a fine, fat hen for his Christmas board,
No pipers playing, no leaping lord
but two little daughters versed in the role,
To be worn, like pinks, in his buttonhole
And the tree of my heart with its carolling linnet
My evergreen heart and the bright bird in it.

As you can see, it's a gorgeous song but can I find the tune? Can I heck. Help, anyone, help!
