thanks Malcolm... i'm looking in traditional ballad airs and ballads of the north of scotland.. does anyone know any other sources something of this tune or tale might be written down therein ?? Interesting to know it is Scottish, I had read somewhere that the ballad was based on some old Irish tale, though the song - as it has come to us - was Scottish... maybe my memory is faulty or the source was.. or perhaps it is all just one chaotic celtic mess..
Mike do you have an email for strollin' johnny, or is he somewhere on one of these threads ?
Anyone know of how many recordings currently exist.. I am aware of 4.
if there are any that pre-date Jones let me know
