Down in the Coal Mine DT  
Down in Yon Forest (per Malcolm:This text was quoted from John Jacob Niles, who copyrighted it in 1935, apparently, though he made no claim to have written it. I don't have the relevant book, so I don't know who he said he had collected it from, though it seems that he got it in North Carolina; however, an almost identical text, with tune, was published in the Journal of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, vol.4, number 3, 1942. It had been noted in 1936 by Ralph Vaughan Williams from the singing of the folklorist Evelyn Wells, who learned it from Amos Curtis of Brasstown, North Carolina. Midi made from RVW's notation. There are a few minor textual differences; none greater than might be expected and not worth noting here (assuming the DT file to be a correct quote from Niles). Perhaps at some point in the future somebody who has the Niles music can compare the two; I expect them to be pretty much the same.) DT thread

The Dreadful Ghost (Midi made,... of that set in Creighton's Maritime Folk Songs (1962).) DT thread
Dream Angus (Per malcolm:Described as "traditional" wherever referred to, and quite likely the tune is; I'm less convinced about the lyric, though. The DT file was transcribed from a record made by a Canadian band, and differs in wording from most examples to be found on the web; since I don't have any printed source for it, I can't say what would be the right of it. There is a verse omitted, however: List to the curlew cryin' oh, Fainter the echoes dyin' oh, Even the birds and beasties are sleepin', But my bonny bairn is weepin', weepin'. ...contains a particularly comical mis-hearing. Either the transcriber or the singer(s) have Dream Angus is hurtlin' through the heather, which is a ludicrously inappropriate image. The word should be hirplin(g), which is, to limp; move unevenly; hobble. Midi made from staff notation found on the web) DT thread
Dremlen Feygl ( Notes per Malcolm:Midi made from notation which originally appeared in Sing Out! vol. 6, 1964. The title there was given as S'Dremlin Feigle, with words and music both credited to Leah Rudnitzky; the DT has "Words by Leah Rudnicki; Music by Leyb Yampolski". They gave a translation, which the contributor to the DT failed to do: Birds are dozing on the branches, Sleep my dear little one. At your crib on an old wooden bench, A stranger sings to you. There was a time when your crib Was woven out of happiness. But now your mother, oh, your mother, Will never return. I have seen your father running, Under a hail of stones And his far and lonely wail Flew over the fields. The translation was perhaps made by Dina Suller, who sent the song to Sing Out. ) DT
