The younger melody was composed by Kentuckian John Jacob Niles, collector and performer of Appalachian folk songs, and an important influence on the American Folk revival in the 1950s. In a biography of Niles—I Wonder As I Wander—Professor Ron Pen of the University of Kentucky has observed that Niles created a completely different melody from the versions he had collected in Kentucky in 1916. The melody used for the choral arrangement on this disc is the version sung by Irish singer/songwriter Christy Moore, who learned the song from Scottish folk singer Hamish Imlach in 1968. This modern Scottish song is a rendering of an Appalachian antecedent of Niles’ version collected by Cecil Sharp in Kentucky and published in English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians (1917).

Waiting here for someone Only yesterday we were on the run You smile back at me and your face lit up the sun Now I’m waiting here for someone And oh, love, do you feel this rough? Why’s it only you I’m thinking of My shadow’s dancing Without you for the first time My heart is hoping You’ll walk right in tonight Tell me there are things that you regret ‘Cause if I’m being honest I ain’t over you yet That’s all I’m asking Is it too much to ask? Is it too much to ask? Someone’s moving outside The lights come on down the drive I forget you’re not here when I close my eyes Do you still think of me sometimes? And oh, love, watch the sun coming up Don’t it feel fucked up we’re not in love My shadow’s dancing Without you for the first time My heart is hoping You’ll walk right in tonight And tell me there are things that you regret ‘Cause if I’m being honest I ain’t over you yet That’s all I’m asking Is it too much to ask? My shadow’s dancing Without you for the first time My heart is hoping You’ll walk right in tonight And tell me there are things that you regret ‘Cause if I’m being honest I ain’t over you yet My shadow’s dancing Without you for the first time My heart is hoping You’ll walk right in tonight And tell me there are things that you regret ‘Cause if I’m being honest I ain’t over you yet That’s all I’m asking Is it too much to ask? That’s all I’m asking Is it too much to ask? That’s all I’m asking Is it too much to ask?
