Subject: RE: Pip Radish Sings Trad-ish
New at (Phil Edwards sings) A Folk Song A Day (for ten days): The Bonny Hind. Another Child ballad, in this case learned from Tony Rose's wonderful version.

To my mind this is the saddest song in the world ever, with the possible exception of Sheath and Knife. Never mind Place To Be or Fire And Rain -

But O, sing O! for my bonny hind beneath that hollin tree

It doesn't get much better (or worse) than that.
