GUEST,Scotus (minus cookie) ADD/Origins: the Texas Ranger (35) RE: Lyr Req: Texas Rangers (from Ian & Sylvia) 06 Oct 06

I believe that Jean Ritchie taught 'The Texas Rangers' to a Scottish traditional singer (Jane Turrif?) in the 1950s and she, thinking the Indians were in India, assumed the Rangers were a British outfit and added an extra verse admonishing them to beware of tigers!
