Thread Name: Origins: Rain and Snow
Subject: Origins: Rain and Snow
I am looking for the origins of the song Rain and Snow, which was recorded by the Grateful Dead and Pentangle. According to Internet searches it was previously collected by Sharp from Mrs. T. Rice in 1916 in North Carolina, however where exactly did it come from - England, Ireland? Also, does anyone know of a recording of this song in it's traditional form.

Any assistance is much appreciated.
