Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
Subject: RE: Req/ADD: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
The Songs of John Jacob Niles (New Edition containing Eight Additional Songs)
1993 (G. Schirmer, New York)
--I can't reconstruct the contents of the 1928 edition from this one; copyright dates of the songs in the 1993 edition range from 1934 to 1990.

Go 'way from my window
The Black Dress
The Lass from the Low Countree
I wonder as I wander
Black is the color of my true love's hair
The Lotus Bloom
The Carol of the Birds
Sweet little boy Jesus
Jesus, Jesus, rest your head
What Songs Were Sung
The Rovin' Gambler
The Gambler's Lament
The Gambler's Wife (By-Low)
Gambler, don't you lose your place
Gambler's Song of the Big Sandy River
My Lover is a farmer lad
The Wild Rider
Ribbon Bow
Little Black Star
The Robin and the the Thorn
Unused am I to Lovers
When I get up into Heaven
The Flower of Jesse

Anyone have any thoughts on my post (two above) asking about the meaning of 'city brung and fair with smart' ? Or the hypothesis that 'lawin' might be 'lovin'' rather than laywering ?
