Does anybody remember this old country tear jerker? Looking for the lyrics and name of recording artist.

I have a version done by the Blue Sky Boys. I will have to check who wrote it.

This is a previous thread on the song.

The song I have is called Row Me Over The Tide - two orphans begging toend their plight. Sniff...

It was also recorded by Bridie Gallagher. The opening lines are:
"Two Little Orphans,
A boy and a girl sat by an old church door.
The little girl's feet were as brown as the curls,
That fell on the dress that she wore."

I first heard this song in scotland in 1978 when I lived there as a little girl. I can't remember the name of the artist but he also had a song called "old shep" on the albulm. I've been looking at different lyrics but they are all a little off from the song that I know. I suppose that's common for older folk songs.

Here's a Mudcat thread which contains a link to a 1960's recording of Dodi Kallick singing "Row Us Over The Tide" and here's a Spotify link to Kathy Kallick performing it with Jody Stecher, Kate Brislin, and Amy Stenberg on her 2001 "My Mother's Voice" album.
