Subject: RE: Lyr Req: camp song about home in tyrol
I've no idea which song Stephen is looking for. Neither verse nor refrain he gives ring any bells. Don't know 'Meine Heimat ist Tirol' either.
I do know 'Peters Brünnele', though, which doesn't seem to be from Tyrol but from Steiermark, another Austrian state. It's fairly well known in Germany and turns up in a very popular songbook, 'Die Mundorgel'. It is sometimes done with actions like clapping (your hands), slapping (your thighs) and snapping (your fingers).
Ask me again when you're looking for a song from the north - I might be more help there.
