I have a cd with this song on it. The chorus--
" Oh Angelita, my love for you is an open door
If you'll come and stay with me
   My heart will sing for ever more..."
The tune ,I think, is an old fiddle tune.
I would love to know who sings/wrote it so I could give proper credit if I ever manage to learn it. Any ideas??

Does the cd have any data with it? What company issued it?
There are several "Angelita" songs.

...although it sounds very old, this is a tune written by Mark Simos. Mark is a professor at the Berklee School of Music. It is an absolutely awesome tune and I would love to decipher some more of the lyrics so I can sit around on MY front porch and pick and sing the tune. I have figured out most of the lyrics based on the Newtown recording from 2011...just a few words I can't quite get. I saw Newtown perform this at the 2015 Busybird Bluegrass Festival in Berkshire, NY and I bought the CD within minutes!
