Reiver 2 Lyr Req: Melville Castle (Alistair MacDonald) (11) RE: Alistair MacDonald/Melville Castle Lyrics 16 May 06

(Actually it said "For (not four) recordings in England -- but I get your point -- Scotland and England are not the same place.)

I've been listening carefully, and I would make one correction in the lyrics as posted. For the ladies to set up "sic a war" doesn't really make sense and careful listening convinces me it should be "set up sic a roar."

"Cries and tears" understandably may be a result of war, but hardly constitute a war.

Minor point, perhaps, but in the interest os accuracy...."
