Thread Name: Origins: How many versions of Geordie
Subject: RE: How many versions of Geordie
Geordie in Italian is not an original italian version of the ballad, but a translation. Fabrizio De André recorded it. There are also Italian versions of the Child Ballads, the most widespread of them being L'Avvelenato, that is Lord Randall. Costantino Nigra, who knew Francis James Child's work, collected these ballads in XIX Century.
