Good morning Harp, The "wedding dress" song I know starts out

Hey my little Doney gal, don't you guess You better be makin' your wedding dress Wedding dress, wedding dress, Better be making your wedding dress

a highly modal (no, not holy modal) melody.

Since this has both wedding dress and Doney gal (in honour of your group-- and how did the concert go??!!) in it I suspect it is the one you are looking for. Is it? I can give you the verses; it goes into a "colours" song along the lines of It's already made and trimmed in green Prettiest thing you'ev ever seen. . .

PETE

Hello Pete,
I have the words, kind sir. Can you give me the chords and the tempo? And how are you this fine November morning?I'm sure I can figure it out if I have to since it isn't too difficult but a bit of help would be great. And if Jane is going to fiddle it she needs music. DoneyGals are doing great. We did four stages at Barberville last weekend and we have a benefit tomorrow. harpgirl

I heard Cindy Mangsen sing this song at the Philadelphia Folk Festival last weekend, and I thought I had the tune memorized. But when I looked up the words in DT, I found that they don't scan with the tune I have in my head. Anybody know where it's been recorded or have a tune file they could post to the DT lyrics?

Any help much appreciated - it's haunting me.

A little late for harpgirl, but there's a recording by an Australian band, String Theory, on their CD, Trimmed in Red (part of a line from the song). Their web presence is at www.myspace.com/stringtheoryfolk

Is there a version without the tastelessly Africanized backbeat and off-accents and without the stupid vocal ooh-ahs?
