A third choice for the new CD - I love this little song!  The melody is the same as the slow and sad "Wind That Shakes The Barley" -  a tragic rebel love story.  In "Maid" it is a boucy, saucy story - and lots of fun to share with friends!

Another song for the Traditional CD...  first mix...  What do you think?   This is one the kids love to hear.  The chorus of numbers in backwards count seems to fascinate them!  I love the tune and the way the words wrap around each other...  How about you?

An old English story song that found its way to the mountains of America....  There are lots of versions and I tried to choose verses to tell the story well.   Please give it a listen and let me know what you think...  Your comments will all go to make it a better recording!
