Green Grows the Laurel


Recommended Posts

I was watching an old western the other day and they snag this lovely song around the campfire.  I would love to learn this on my anglo - does anyone know of the song "Green Grows the Laurel" and where I could get the music for it?

Is this the one? Nice - it's now on my 'little list'.

Basic ABC and PDF attached. It's in F. I'm happy to transpose it to another key if you don't have the software....

TheSession.org has Green Grows the Rushes. Looks the same.

 

Green grow the rushes was one of those songs which we hated because of the way they taught it to us in primary school.

Thanks to singers like Dougie MacLean, it has come to be better appreciated as a fine song.

days, eh? 'Twas very popular in the UK...

Memories. I think we had about 6 years of the program.

A version of the similar "Green Grow the Lilacs" can be found in the Cowboy Concertina book, arranged for harmonic-style Anglo in the key of C. Here's what it sounds like:
