From the PBS series, "The Civil War," comes a haunting folk melody which has been arranged here for "Easy Piano" by Dan Coates.

  • February 22, 2012 Beautiful, haunting, easy arrangement

    I play at an early advanced level. Dan Coates rated this as *easy*, but the way he arranged it brings out the haunting melody without the *empty* feel of an easy to play. I watched the movie on TV many years ago and could not get the melody out of...

    my head for a long time. I gave away most of my music and my piano when we moved to Hawaii. Now I have another keyboard, and just had to get this song.
