Thanks, @davisjames. I had no idea the tune was that popular.  Those old waltz ballads can sure be relaxing.

That brings back great memories.Just about every button box player in Newfoundland used to play it.Sounds beautiful.Made me think of more "waltzy" tunes of which there were many.

To really showcase the Bill Taylor, I'd need some pictures.  The quilted maple is stunningly elegant. Thanks for taking the time to comment, @jan-potts.

Thanks, Val. I appreciate your taking the time to comment.  I find a lot of these old ballads and airs very soothing. coool  No pressure to play "up to speed" like those evil reels and jigs that keep mocking me tongue because I can't keep up!
