Thanks for the correction, Ed. I changed it on my lyrics post so people won't get confused. It's a wonderful song, isn't it? It helped me remember what a nice town Salem is - and it's so close to Cape Ann, which is one of my favorite places.
Yeah, I gotta say the tune needs some work on tempo. I'm not very good at transcribing by ear, so I won't volunteer to try to fix it. One thing will make a big difference, though - if I hear it correctly, the song is in 3/4 time. Paste it into concertina.net and change it to 3/4, and you'll see a big difference.
