Thread Name: Lyr Req: When First unto This Country (Lee Valley
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: When First I came into this Country
oh dear, that's yet another song which doesn't bear much resemblance to the American song under discussion in this thread, apart from the first line. Mr Happy's song shares a tune with the hymn "Be Thou My Vision", and can be found elsewhere in this forum and also I think in the DT. I sing "I'll reside with my dear" where Mr Happy has "I'll style her my dear" at the end of the song. and other small difference
The "blood drips in snow" I suppose must be a typo for "blood drops in snow", still strange imagery!

and the song lajaragirl wants is now on another thread; I provided a link above and MMario has done an abc (thanks,MMario)
