Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
Subject: RE: If I Had a Ribbon Bow - apologies to Judy!
Sorry, sorry, sorry, Judy. I've listened to the track again, and realised why I was hearing the phrase 'to tie my hair' incorrectly. 'Tie' contains the two vowel sounds 'iy' and 'ee', and where these are sung across slurred notes, the 'ee' sounds like 'in' to me. Anyway, I'll shut up now, as unless others can listen to Fairport Convention's recording of the song, they won't have a clue what I'm talking about.
