Thank you Roxy, I had noticed the very emotional quality of the "Lynched" version, in addition to the accent, but didn't know what it was called or that it was used at Irish funerals.

Of course if the lovers were of diffferent faiths their families would have been vehemently opposed to the match.

Of course Roxy, you're quite right! Keening is the discription of the singing by the lady in Lynched! It's ages since I've heard the like! Very authentic!

Jane43 Put up practical points too! If the courting couple were of opposite faiths, they'd be hell to pay, especial if the girl was pregnant! Plus, life being so cheep in those times, doing away with someone and hoping to cover their tracks was a risk worth taking! Ha Ha! It's a loaded song this Willow Gardens and not the only song of its type when we read the lyrics of 'Knoxville Girl' printed out by Jane43 too! That courting couple just must have had the girl 'in trouble'!
This has been an interesting topic! xxx

Yes it has been really interesting to talk about these old songs. I wonder if future generations will have such conversations about the songs of today?

Re the accent.
I heard that this was a concern when the met in the Spring of '83. Phils accent had changed due to living in LA for that period and Don moving back to Nashville.

I lovw his twang in the video shot at his hotel when he talks about falling in the well and his accent really comes through.

Redhead. 'Don Everly On Kentucky Afield' I think this is the one! Don doesn't actually fall down the well but his accent is well in evidence! It's on You Tube! Not sure how to post the video! My next job is to find out how! I'm sure you'll find it! It's the one with Don taking two guys around his land and Lake Adela .......As far as I know!

Jeanroberts -

I know the video you're talking about, I saw it on Youtube. It starts with him fishing in the boat with his old teacher and that cute host of the show.

Though I loved Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" and a lot of Ed Sheeran's, I doubt many so called "songs" of the day will last a bit over a year or two at the most. Lets not forget that these old folk songs are the ones that have survived the test of time.

He does a pretty good job singing Phil's part too!

I never heard any accent from Phil even when they were young, but always in Don. It wasn't just after Phil moved to LA. To my ears he never had an accent. I like both of their voices, don't get me wrong, just that one has an accent and the other not.

Total agree Redhead! Phil has always had such soft well spoken speech, lovely to listen to. Don has the accent still, and I've heard him say befower when he says before at times! Both of them have speech full of their characters!
Video's keep all these wonderful musical artists alive to us! They are not simply a memory! Thanks to You Tube! xxx

I especially love how Don says 'keer' instead of 'care' in some songs. Specifically I hear it when he sings Deep Water.
