GUEST,Stephen R. Origins: Some Rival Has Stolen My True Love Away (43) RE: version of 'Some tyrant has stolen' 26 Dec 03

Malcolm, this is the sort of response that warms the cockles of the heart--everything I asked for and more. Tell me, do you suppose the huntsman with horn and hounds in the Hills version is an echo from Love's Fierce Desire, in which it is the temporarily abandoned lover himself who seeks to forget his woes by hunting foxes in the forest? I haven't seen a huntsman in other versions, but haven't studied the song either.
