Come all you Canucks!

Step up and help out a poor boy...

The first 2 or three notes of this song have been haunting me of late, and if I don't get the rest of the tune out of my head and into some instrument (recorder would be too predictable??) I just might go postal!

I'll even settle for a midi if I have to... Sheet music would be cool too!

Anyone? Rick?

http://www.tvparty.com/lostgiant.html (from a google search) says that the tune is Early One Morning, a 16th century English song. That sounds about right to me (it was shown in the USA as well). The song is also known as How Could You Use A Poor Maidem So, which probably accounts for them not using the lyrics. I couldn't find it in DT under either title, but I only took a fast glance.

The liner notes to Stephen Fearings CD "Industrial Lullaby" call it "Robert's Waterloo"... that's becasue Bob was TFG's real name... but where does the "Waterloo" come in??

I'm still trying to find a copy of the tune for download...

Yep, it is Early One Morning... Early one morning before the sun had risen I heard a bluebird in a field gaily sing Soft winds are blowing Green grass is growing What a .... forget after that ... spring. Considering I'm going back some forty years to recall those lyrics -- I didn't even know I remembered them until I started typing. I know, no chords, no sheet music, just a Detroiter who got CBC out of Windsor and LOVED the giant!

Early one morning just as the sun was rising,
I heard a maiden singing in the valley below.
O don't deceive me, O never leave me
how could you use a poor maiden so?

Sung it at school 40 years ago Cobble.

I also remember this tune, but the Lyrics in my head are, "Early one morning just as the sun was rising, I heard a bird at the breaking of dawn. Spring time is nearly here, warm sun and flowers appear,...." I simply can't find this version anywhere!!??! Any help? Anyone else remember this version?
