The Old Churchyard


Recommended Posts

I just heard a version of this old song done by The Murphy Beds.  I'm wondering how this would sound with concertina accompaniment.  Does anyone know of a video of this song being played on an anglo?

It strikes me that this tune has a lot in common with "The Parting Glass"


... which, in turn, has a lot in common with “Star of the County Down.” I didn’t pick it up when I listened to “The Old Churchyard” yesterday, but I just listened again, and yeah, they’re all basically the same tune. What goes around comes around.
