Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Witches' Reel (Scots)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Scots Song: 'the witches' reel'
The Danish text says that the song was sung by a witness at a witches' trial in 1590 but no further clarification. It also translates 'cummer' as 'come' but gives a correct translation as 'woman' in the notes.
