Thread Name: Tune Req: Water Cresses
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Water Cresses
Steve, Clifton's song "The Watercress Girl" (which begins "One day I took a ramble down by a running stream") is NOT the same song as the one Bob posted and for which he's seeking a tune. For what it's worth, two of the songs which he mentioned it is NOT are in fact the same (Clifton) song: "The Watercress Girl" and "Martha, the Watercress Girl". As it happens, because this is such a well-known song--tune and, I believe, sheet music widely available online--you never sent me the sheet music and I didn't bother transcribing it from another source.

To avoid unwanted thread drift, those wishing to discuss "The Watercress Girl" should post to this thread instead:
     Martha, the Watercress Girl:
(Lyrics and ABC there, taken from a Roy Palmer song collection; lyrics have also been posted in the "Harry Clifton songwriter" thread.)
