At a Whitby session in the Elsinore someone played the waltz Man in the Moon.
And someone else said, that it was a song.

I'm sure there are lots of song about the moon, the one I'm after is to the tune in Vol2 of the Lewes Favourites

Just found this again (it fell off the list quickly)
I don't think that line would scan.
It goes...
Da da dada dadada dadadaDAAA
Dada daa da dada da daaa

Valmai, do you know the words?

Andy M. Stewart sang one by that name that starts out "I come from the land of the long grass and gorse" and features a chorus with "You brought me down gently, you brought me down clean. You fed me the summer, you fed me your dreams." Might that be it?

That's the one, John.
I don't think the Andy Stewart words would fit.
