Thread Name: Origins: Anach Cuain / Anach Cuan
Subject: RE: anach cuain
Yes indeed; Sarah Makem's text, as later recorded by Peter Bellamy, is in this thread:  Derry Gaol.  It's also sometimes called "The Weary Gallows".  While I'm at it, there's a list of links to texts and information relating to the whole song-group in this thread:  The Maid Freed From the Gallows

I've been hearing people sing "Love is Teasing" to that tune for years, but it was only when you mentioned it that I realised that it was "Anach Cuain".
