GUEST,Richie Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 4 (69* d) RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 4 21 Feb 13


I haven't looked at Roud yet but I will after I put my 60 or so US versions on. Bronson is missing several versions from the Brown Collection. I need help identifying some of US version sources esp. Peggy Seeger, Doc Watson.

Peggy Seeger- US version (Source?)

As I walked over old London's Bridge
It was in the morning early
There I espied a pretty fair maid
Lamenting for her Geordie

She said "now saddle me my bly,
go bridle him right gaily,
and I will ride this live long night
and beg for the life of Geordie."

Also the late great Doc Watson's version- probably a local NC version I have the recording but not the source. Anyone?
