Thread Name: Origin: Jute Mill Song
Subject: RE: Jute Mill Song
In the thread on permissions Ewan MacVicar wrote (11/03)
Mary Brooksbank says on a School of Scottish Studies recording that she heard the Dundee mill lassies saying / singing [can't recall which] the first two lines
'Oh dear me -- get their rest'
and she wrote / added the rest.
I didn't see anything else in any of the threads when I looked (before I asked.) ;-) I'm looking for a bit more, if anyone knows it.
