Subject: RE: Tune Req: Step by Step need melody
No, 'Step by Step' is right. The lyrics are part of the preamble to the constitution of the early coal miner's union. Part of it is on 'Carry It On' - Pete Seeger, Jane Sapp and Si Kahn Flying Fish. The tune is to the Irish 'The Praties they grow small, over here'. As I recall there is a thread on foot about that tune. I have a full version of the lyrics somewhere, but I can't recall where at the moment.

Regards, Stewie.
