I thought this song was traditional, but I guess it's not. Does it have the same melody as "Sourwood Mountain"?

DOUGLAS MOUNTAIN
(words by Arnold Sundgaard, music by Alec Wilder)


Cedars are growin' on Douglas Mountain
Cedars are growin' so high
Cedars are growin' on Douglas Mountain
Joining the earth to the sky / Joining the earth to the sky


Snows are a-fallin' on Douglas Mountain
Snows are a-fallin' so deep
Snows are a-fallin' on Douglas Mountain
Puttin' the bears to sleep / Puttin' the bears to sleep

Trimmin' the wicks on Douglas Mountain
Shinin' my chimney so bright
Trimmin' the wicks on Douglas Mountain
So God can bring the night / So God can bring the night

Sun's goin' down on Douglas Mountain
Nights are so long and so cold
Sun's goin' down on Douglas Mountain
And I am feelin' old / And I am feelin' old
