Thread Name: Tune Req: The Star o' the Bar (Davie Robertson)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Star O' The Bar
Ok; here's a revision:  Star of the Bar.  I'm wondering if one or two notes in the last line ought to be in the higher octave, too (specifically, was the star)?

Maybe that's too predictable.  Though the tune is a variant of Fair Flower of Northumberland, the model for the lyric has to be The Rose of Tralee.
