Subject: RE: Origin: The Snow It Melts the Soonest
In New York last night, watched Tess of the d'Urbervilles on public TV. Milk maidens sing it in a brief scene. I forgot how beautiful the song is and reserected - on my Ipod - the Dick Gaughan version on "Handful of Earth". Being from NY, I couldn't make out many of his words. Thanks to all above for the lyrics help. Now happen to like the Cara Dillion version the best. Will be learing it on the guitar and singing it by month end.
