JB3 Parting songs (144* d) RE: PARTING SONGS 15 Aug 98

In the database you may find:
Jamaica Farewell by Lord Burgess,
Sammy's Bar by Cyril Tawney
The Farewell Shanty by Mervyn Vincent
The Grey Funnel Line by Cyril Tawney
Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore
Happy Trails to You by Dale Evans

Perhaps not strictly parting songs, I also like:

Hard Times Come Again No More by Stephen Foster
Drive Dull Care Away
You've Been a Friend to Me by the Carter Family

Three lovely parting songs I couldn't find in the DT are:

Farewell True Love, Remember Me, traditional Irish
Give Me an Ivy Leaf
The Time Draws Near (also called My Dearest Dear}

There are a number of camp-meeting songs that are good evening-enders.

Bright Morning Stars
Camp a Little While in the Wilderness
Good Friends Now Our Meeting is Over
Rainbow 'Round His Shoulders

At Berea Christmas Country Dance School, we always end the evening with Goodnight Beloved Mine.

Two more, really sad ones:

Time Has Made a Change in Me
Carrick Fergus
