Scarlett O’Hara

Scarlett O’Hara” is an instrumental composition by Jerry Lordan, who is noted as the composer of a number of the Shadows hits — including “Apache” and “Wonderful Land”.

“Scarlett O’Hara” was released in 1963 by former Shadows Jet Harris & Tony Meehan, and by Lawrence Welk and His Orchestra. In the United Kingdom, Jet Harris & Tony Meehan’s version reached No. 2 on the charts. Lawrence Welk’s version spent 2 weeks on the USA Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 89.

My arrangement is in a 1960’s guitar-rock style, but is not a cover of the Jet Harris/Tony Meehan version, which uses a full orchestra.
