Mary Black's lyric page has: Broom of The Cowdenknowes

There are (at least) 2 versions in the DT as The Broom of Cowdenowes (no k).

The Blacks learned this Scottish song from the Fishers of Glasgow (Archie, Ray, Cilla etc.) so far as I remember. Lyrics were given on an insert with the original vinyl release (The Black Family, DARA 023,no date).

There are 17th and 19th century songs of that title on the Bodleian Ballads website.

Silly Wizard did a mean version of this too.

The verse
"Oh the broom, the bonny, bonny broom
The broom of the Cowdenowes
I wish these lords had stayed at home
And milked their minnies(?) yowes

appears in the Jacobite song "Oh my king", to the same tune, which I have on the cassette "Fair Length and Share" recorded by Ron Taylor and Jeff Gillett. (Ron Taylor used to be in the Songwainers and there are wonderful versions of "the Banks of Green Willow", "Willie's Lady" and "Willie drowned in Ero" on the same cassette.)

These threads were found by using the Forum Search, which you can get to by using the pull-down menu on the upper left of any thread page, or the upper right of the main forum page. I put "cowden" in the search box. "Broom o" works, too.
