Your words are right on, Liz, according to the version The Reivers used to sing, with one slight exception: We sang "Plenty fish to fill her creel". Since a creel was/is a wicker basket used by anglers to carry fish, I think that makes more sense than wishing for her to fill it with peat. I believe we learned our version from a record of The Corries, but I'm not sure as I think we also had versions done by the Clancys, The Irish Rovers, and some others as well.
