Isn't it the same as the "Wind That Shakes The Barley"? In the Mudcat midis.

Include a section of (or a link to) the lyrics so we know which song you mean.

If you're talking about what I *think* you're talking about, it's "The Wind that Shakes the Corn", which has essentially the same storyline as "The Wind that Shakes the Barley", but is sung in "old time waltz" tempo, rather than the more contemplative tempo usually used for "Barley".

The tune that I have always heard used for "Corn" is the same tune as is used for "Tramps and Hawkers", "England's Motorway", "Paddy West", and probably others as well. On the first album by Celtic Thunder (for those who are familiar with it) they used this tune for Terry Winch's song "The Best Years of Their Lives".

If you go to "Paddy West" in the DT, the midi there is almost the same as the tune I know for this song.
