Hi Camilla,

I know Johnny Lovely Johnny from the singing of Dolores Keane. You will find it (with the High Walls of Derry verse) onone of the finest traditional recordings I have ever heard, Broken Hearted I Will Wander by Dolores Kean and John Faulkner. Every track on that recording is a flawless gem, even if it did take me ten years to understand all of the lyrics. On this song in particular, for the line "with my white apron round us" I would sing "with my white hair pulled round us" ! There is also a very good piece of Lowland Scots mouoth music, which I still can't figure out what they are singing! Any help out there. I may start a new thread.....
