Thread Name: Origins: Heather Down the Moor (from June Tabor)
Subject: RE: Tabor - Heather Down the Moor
The song is on the LP ' I Once Was A Daysman ' by Eddie Butcher on the Free Reed label, the sleeve notes say Robert Burns attributed the song to ' a Kilmarnock girl called Jean Glover, who was not a harlot but a thief '
