Refresh. This is to remind me tomorrow to transcribe the words if no one has gotten them. Norman and Betty MacDonald sang it on one of their albums but I was awfully busy today. I've been meaning to transcribe and learn it for a long time. As I remember it, their liner notes say they believe it was written about a real person, a lovely young girl who died (of consumption?) at about 18. Is this the song you want? The chorus is,

Lucy Gray of Allendale
Lucy Gray of Allendale,
Fairer than any flower
Is Lucy Gray of Allendale.
