Thread Name: Origins: Hills of Isle au Haut (Gordon Bok)
Subject: RE: What are lyrics to Hills of Isle A Haut?
I found one mistake in the lyrics as given in the DT, and as posted above by Rapaire. According to the printed notes that accompany the "A Tune for November" LP, it isn't "the trouble with old Martin", it is "the trouble with old Martir", which is, as I recall, pronounced something like mar-TEER.

The printed notes go on to say "Gordon generally sings another verse, not on the record:", and gives it as

The girls of Cascais,
They are strong across the shoulder;
They don't give a man advice,
They don't want to cook his supper.
