Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Siul a Ruin
reminder to Martin Ryan re Clandillon query

also question for Art Thieme: is the Chubby Parker version recognisably related to Siúl a Rúin or is it only your adaptation with verses from Buttermilk Hill (or Butternut Hill)that is similar to the Irish song?
I haven't heard the Parker song yet. The versions I know of Siúl A Ghrá, Siúl a Rúin and Buttermilk Hill/Johnny has gone for a Soldier all have fairly similar albeit not identical airs.
