Just to keep folks up to date, my version is still a work in progress. I keep finding melodies that are either too peppy or too sombre for how I want it to come across. I'm leaning towards a mix of spoken and simply sung with a gently mournful banjo. Or a thoroughly unconventional folk instrument like newest baby, a cello. It's a great attention-grabber for busking. But I can't sing and play it at the same time yet, so we'll see...and practise.
