Does anybody have any more information at all about this song 'The Heathery Hills', which Brigid Tunney can be heard singing on the recent Topic Records release 'The Flax in Bloom'?
Apparently she learnt it from her sister, who learnt it in the city of Glasgow.
It's NOT the same song as 'The Heathery Hills of Yarrow', and I don't believe that it exists on the Mudcat DT.
The first verse runs
'I mind it well, I see it yet
In a halo of sunset glory
When I climbed knee deep in gorse and fern
To keep my tryst with Rory'
Thanks a lot.
