Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Fate O' Charlie LP- help with lyrics?
Still looking for it. Apparently the words are in a songbook called 'A Jacobite Legacy' by Peter Kay. Does anyone have a copy of that they could check? The record doesn't have any info on specific songs, only a brief history of the uprisings and no authors are given. It might be Lady Nairn, it doesn't seem to be Robbie Burns or Sir Walter Scott or Lady John Scott or......
So who wrote it then? Is it a recent one?
