Thread Name: Top Ten Old Ballads
Subject: RE: Top Ten Old Ballads
Well, the Gathering of the Clans isn't dated, so it COULD qualify, but you probably wouldn't want to sing it anyway.

The Wicked Youth is good for grins. (Six little maidens I have drownded here -- and you the seventh shall be).

The Nightingale Sing is always good for a chuckle on the ribald side.
Arguably not a ballad though.
