Subject: RE: Review: Bonnie Jeannie O' Bethelnie/Glenlogie
Thanks all, & thanks for the link Malclom (I couldn't find any text but I don't know if it's me or that there's just the info on that page that comes up).
I found in Danny's 7th verse; "'Oh dear me', says Glenlogie", translation a bit hard to swallow with a straight face but he probably sings it with a bit more passion & seriousness than how I'd read it with my off sense of what's comical.
I know there's the earliest version (1768) is in the Percy Collection (364) & that there's 9 texts in Child (238), 21 texts in Bronson (238), Roud (101) & a Law's & an Ord version but I can't seem to find a way to access any of the ballad sheets from any of the sights. I don't do well with searching, any help here would be really appreciated.
Most of what I've searched & can come up with is pretty much the same text as what's already been posted above. I sure there must be other different texts out there but I just can't get at them.
