Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Mary O'Hara's The Elfin Knight #2
Robb verse, "The Laird o' Elfin":
And ye maun winny't in your nieves
Ba-ba-ba leelie ba
And ye maun seek it in your gloves
And the wind blaws aye my plaid awa.
And ye maun stook it on the sea
Ba-ba-ba leelie ba
And a dry sheaf ye maun bring to me
And the wind blaws ate my plaid awa.

From Bronson, pp. 7-8.

Quite different from the McColl-Peggy Seeger version posted by Stewie in thread 55899: The Elfin Knight
