Subject: RE: Tune Origin: When I Needed a Neighbour (S. Carter)
The first 2 lines appear to me like a minor development of 'Simple Gifts' and then the rest developed from that. Very effective and brilliantly done whatever its inspiration. It also has affinity with one of the tunes to 'The Lowlands of Holland' with slightly different phrasing.
