Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Brave Wolfe (Ian & Sylvia version)
Subject: RE: lYRICSA\bRAVE wOLF\iAN & sYLVIA vERSION
Rich R,

You just beat me to it. I just transcribed the Ian and Sylvia words because the version in the Mills Folkways set bears hardly any resemblance to them. This is passing strange since they both give the same source - Mrs Greenleaf, Newfoundland 1929. Still, it keeps up my typing skills. Wolfe was a balladeer's wet dream – he was young and brave, he was ill and in love and he died on the battlefield at the moment of victory.

Cheers, Stewie.
