Thread Name: Tune Req: Tree Song / Oak, Ash and Thorn (Kipling)
Subject: RE: Help: kipling - A Tree Song
*I've lost this posting three times now....so if I sound peeved, it's at me*

Very slowly now, I KNOW the Peter Bellamy tune for Oak and Ash and Thorn, also known as "A Tree Song" which is where the lyrics come from. THAT tune is still under copyright. I am asking if anyone has a TRADITIONAL or PUBLIC DOMIAN tune that fits well with the words. "Why?" you ask? Well, if I decide to record it, then I don't have to worry about copyright. And if I decide to perform it, I don't have to worry about BMI or ASCAP.

In other words, I am being lazy, and before I spend the energy trying to come up with a tune myself, figured I'd see if someone else already had one they were using...

I'm sorry, I must really be tired. I really didn't think this was that difficult a question to understand
