toadfrog The trees they do grow high: medieval? (100* d) RE: The trees they do grow high: medieval? 23 Jul 16

1. The other threads which mention this song say the song comes from an actual event: the bonny boy (Craigston) died in 1634, and that the marriage was not only arranged but was a blatant theft of the boy's inheritance by the girl's father.

2. I have often wondered why this song was never included as a Popular Ballad. Does anyone know?
