I am looking for the tune/music to a funeral hymn/dirge I heard years and years ago at funeral in rural Appalachia: Whitley Co., KY to be precise.

"Sleeping Neath the Wilted Flowers"

I can find the lyrics posted in several place on the internet, e.g., http://holiness-preaching.org/Lyrics/S014.html

And I can find sheet music to a late-19th century piece of similar name and topic: "Sleeping Neath the Fair Spring Flowers."

http://www.loc.gov/item/sm1876.10083b/

They lyrics are not interchangeable in any obvious way.

I would love to find this music.
