Hi Roberto,

After listening to the recording this is what I hear for the third verse:-

The lassie warned her plooboy lad
Of all their plans so thorough -
Go and get for me your father's sword
And I'll fight for you in Yarrow.

The sleeve notes, as you say, aren't much help, but I'm sure there was in an article or interview in Living Tradition or fRoots when this CD was released. If I can remember where it was (and can track it down!) I'll look it up.
