Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Montrose (Steeleye Span)
The chorus is based on two lines of his poem "my dear and only love": I serve thee in such noble ways, was never seen befor;
I crown and deck thee all with bays and love the evermore.
This was not the one written before his execution
see for some of Montrose's poems, also the very good book "Cicil Warrior" by Robin Bell.
Ne oublie!
