Thread Name: Tune Req: poverty knocks
Subject: RE: Tune Req: poverty knocks
I did hear from somebody a few years ago that the original(?)tune for Poverty Knock echoed the sound of the shuttle on the loom in a mill. I have heard it performed as such - though I have to admit to a preference for a more melodic take on it.
