Been down with the flu...just saw these comments.

I so appreciate such encouraging feedback. Singing with the dulcimer is so soothing to me..so glad I gave it a go..even though a bit later in life. Although I don't sing to perform, it's been so comforting. Glad if it has a similar affect on others.

Oh if only you could sing me to sleep!  Another great song, Janene.  Your fingerpicking supports your voice so well.

I think the first version of this tune I ever heard was by Maybelle Carter on the autoharp.

sorry for the SUPER close up, I usually don't record on my phone. I first thought the "rosewood casket" referred to a burial casket (which IS referenced in the song) but it refers to a little wooden box filled with letters and trinkets (on a marble stand)...guess it could refer to both. I first heard it on the TRIO CD (one of the best CDs EVER! IMO) but have since heard many other versions. It sounds light and yet it is kind of sad.
