Now tunes... That has reminded me, I think that a lot of the discussion in rmf was to do with similarities brtwwen a tune that this song is sung to and the Lakes of Ponchatrain and I have a feeling that the title of the thread referred toPonchtrain rather thab the other one.

I now remember seaching and listening to the tune at Contemplator which IMO was the same tune for both songs. It doesn't seem to bear any resemblance to the 2 tunes given in Songs Of The West.
