Thread Name: Lyr Add: Silkie (as sung by Anne Lister)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Silkie (Anne Lister)
There are great chunks of the traditional (Child #113) ballad in here and most of the rest is paraphrased from The Grey (or Great) Silkie (or Selchie) of Sule Skerry, see SILKIE1 SILKIE2 and SILKIE3 in the DT.
