Billy and Me - an original tune


musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:03:33
description:
Tune by Mary MacGowan, poem by James Hogg, a Scottish poet from the 1700s, public domain. Hogg's original poem is titled A Boy's Song. You will see that I've made it more into a girl's song! And, in response to someone's comment, okay it was Ben's, I don't mean that I changed the poem's words, but that just by singing it as a female, it seems to have changed the whole thing!

Trying to watch your fingers, are you tune DAA? nicel sounding dulcimer, like the finger picking.

 

Hi Marg, yes, DAA. Glad you enjoyed! It's a Blue Lion... I didn't care for the sound when I first got it, but now I just loved it!

I think they call that literary license.  Nicely done.

Thanks Ben... I don't mean that I changed lyrics... it seems that just to have a female singing the poem changes the whole thing!
