I recorded an instrumental cover of "Hey, Ho, Nobody Home."
Long-time reader, first-time poster, blah blah blah.
Since Rob was so nice as to include the music to "Hey, Ho, Nobody Home" in the latest comic, I whipped up a quick instrumental cover of the song. I hope that both Rob and y'all like it.
Lyrics: Rob Balder
Music: Pammelia. Mvsicks Miscellanie (1609) - from miriam berg's collection of rounds

DDrako: When I made the song I had no idea that it was traditional, and thought that it was a composition of Rob's. I picked the tempo that I did because it sounded funereal, and thus appropriate to the scene.
If you'd like to lead the project to make a vocal version, be my guest. Just tell me what tempo you want, how many verses, etc.
Sir Ringwald: I can throw in another harmony line an octave up from the current highest line if that will help.
Morsious: Everything was done with MIDI in iOS 10.x GarageBand. The bass line (low D = D1) is two "clarinets" playing in unison, the next octave up is a "clarinet" and a "bassoon", and the octave above that is a "clarinet" and a "flute".
Squeedge: Thanks; that's what I was after.
Everyone who said "Thank you": You're very welcome.
Everyone who wants to do a vocal version: DDrako seems to be coordinating, with my firm endorsement.
Hopalong - the way you played this song is exactly the way my friends and I used to sing it when I was a kid - a very long, long, time ago.
I never understood these "up beat" versions when the lyrics are clearly death knell-ish despite the:
"Still will I be very, very, merry" part.
Your choice of instruments is perfect. It sounds beautiful. Thank you for posting it.
We are still looking for people to sing but we are progressing on the lyrics. We are recreating A Soalin Peter Paul and Mary, it is a slow process as a lot of people were busy for Easter. we are still missing women voices for this and also someone who is good at editing songs. if you want to join us message me and ill send you a link to our discord channel.
