Thread Name: Lyr Req: Child Ballads
Subject: RE: Child Ballad lyrics online?
Hi- We don't (as yet) have Young Waters. Waly Waly is there (search for #94 or [Child #94]. I suspect that the odds on James Douglas assimilating an older lyric of Waly Waly are at least as good as those of the ballad coming first and Waly Waly being a degenerate form.
