Five comments

This is a composition of Jerry Holland. I think the Sarah in question is his daughter. Liz Doherty & Fiddlesticks recorded a great version of the tune, with Cape Breton style piano accompaniment, on their album “Racket in the Rectory.”

This is not a Jerry Holland tune. This is a John Morris Rankin composition.
