Thread Name: Child #20 - what is Lindsay?
Subject: Child #20 - what is Lindsay?
In one version of 'Cruel Mother' the refrain is 'ay the rose and the lindsay-o'. I sing the song but hate not knowing what 'Lindsay' is. I always assumed it was something botanical - am I right and if so, what exactly is it?
