Alan of Australia Tune Req: Thou Bonnie Wood of Craigielee (29) RE: Tune Req: Thou Bonnie Wood of Craigielee 12 May 00

G'day Bob,
If you follow the blue clicky provided by Barbara above you'll find my comments about Dennis O'Keefe's interpretation of Christina McPherson's tune. I provided one of my own with (educated?) guesswork as far as timing is concerned, but at least the notes aren't changed as they are in D O'K's version.

The Craigielea tune on my site is from "Two Hundred and Twenty Popular Scottish Songs". The copy I have was brought to Australia by my great grandfather in 1893, 2 years before the birth of Waltzing Matilda.

You'll also find some comments about the Fusilier, but you probably own the same source as I do.
