jofield Lyr/Tune Req: Mary of the Wild Moor (10) RE: mary of the wild moor 20 Aug 00

The version shown here is a rather florid interpretation -- though obviously the original, if copyrights are to be believed -- compared to the more soulful and "traditonal American" version of the Blue Sky Boys.

James in Bristol, RI

PS -- In the final verse the Blue Sky Boys sing "...Saying there Mary died, once a gay village bride, by the winds that blow 'cross the wild moor.", making it clear that she did not leave home in disgrace.
