GUEST,Joe_F Eppie Morie: What does it all mean? (62* d) RE: Eppie Morie: What does it all mean? 25 Aug 06

Wandering Minstrel: Professor Child thought otherwise. In his synopsis he says: "She defends herself successfully, and in the morning comes in her lover, Belbordlane, or John Forsyth, well armed, and we presume well supported,...". Was there perhaps actually a Belbordlane, distinct from Breadalbane? Google finds it nowhere but in this ballad. It seems to me to be an unlikely corruption of Breadalbane; the other way around, far more likely. But if it doesn't exist, it doesn't exist.
