I need to learn the tune for the Cornish folk song Bury Me When I die. I believe Harry Glasson sings it (the lyrics are on his website) but I can't find a recording or sheet music for the tune anywhere. Can anyone help?

I just Googled Harry Glasson and it offered me several Youtube sites, including Bury Me....
I'd link to it but my new computer isn't linking to Mudcat at the moment so I'm using my trusty old one that doesn't like Youtube - watching on one and writing on the other.
Sorry I can't be more helpful but it is there along with lots of other songs he sings. Lovely views of Zennor too.

Thank you Robyn. That worked a treat. I did try a search on YouTube myself before coming to mudcat but all I got was American songs. This song is needed for a play my friend is putting on about a Cornish tin miner who was the first Cornishman to play rugby for England. It is a true story and his granddaughter is a member of our theatre. There are several Cornish songs in the play but this one was the only one I couldn't find the tune for and now I have. Thank you again. You have made my day!

Show of Hands have written s song about the miners having to emigrate to find work - Cousin Jack. Its a good song to a jolly tune if you need any more.

Here's Cousin Jack if you want to hear Show of Hands.
My Cornishmen were builders, not miners and they came to NZ in 1856.
