Further to my request for reccomendations on songs about homelessness:

I found the lyrics and supposedly the tune in DigiTrad, but the link for the tune leads to no-where land.

Can anyone supply the tune?
Cheers SR

Rosie - A while back there was a computer crash at Mudcat which caused a lot of problems. Most of the damage has now been sorted out, but one result was that various lnks within the system no longer work. The links to MIDI files are something not yet fixed.
If something is in the Digital Tradition there are a couple of alternative options for finding a tune.

Firstly, if you look at the top right of most pages, there is a box saying "Quick Links" and a blue arrow next to it. Clicking on the arrow brings up a list of things worth looking at both within Mudcat and externally. Near the bottom of the list is one which says "Download your own copy" (of the Digital Tradition). Alternatively click on THIS LINK, which will take you to the same place.
The Digitrad database of songs can be downloaded to your own computer along with MIDI tunes and a programme which plays them. The player allows you to change the speed of the tune and alter the key. It also lets you use a different "instrument" sound for listening. It also means that if for some reason you cannot access Mudcat, you still have the song database to play with.

The second solution is online.
Although Mudcat Cafe is "The home of the Digital Tradition", there are at least two other web sites which are "mirrors" of the Digitrad.
The ones I am aware of are "Yet Another Digital Tradition" and "Folk Songs from Digital Tradition"
The people responsible for these sites have added extras, such as printable sheet music to the Digitrad. The 8notes site is a commercial one which offers a bunch of free stuff, presumably to persuade you it's worth spending money for the premium service on other stuff such as classical scores, arrangements and transcription into other keys.
