Jim, you wrote Shores of Sutherland, so maybe you can tell us whether the lyrics linked above are correct or not. As I remember it, on his Battlefield Ballabs LP Alasdair sang "dulse" not "gulls" in the first verse, and there were more than 3 verses (the lines "Once our corn grew high, as tall and as straight as a highland man" are not in the 3 verse version linked above). So if the 3-verse version is correct, someone else has added at least one extra verse.
