Thread Name: Lyr Req: A Length of Yarn (John Kirkpatrick)
Subject: John Kirkpatrick "yarn" title/lyrics?
I am looking for the title and/or lyrics for a song I heard John Kirkpatrick perform many years ago with Martin Carthy in Dallas.I believe it was an original and dealt with a fisherman's untimely end. The focal point was "a piece of yarn" and was from a mother/sweetheart point of view, I believe. I've never heard it since, but it haunts me now. Any help?
