Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Arthur McBride (from Paul Brady)
"While we're on the subject, anyone familiar with the tune with the chorus"the bonnie wee lasses answer was to don't come again". It's off his welcome here Kind Stranger album, and the third verse has me stumped: I wrote her back an answer, for to let her know, my [life was in my bondie?] and with her I could not go. [my life was in my bondie?], and while it does remain, I will lie by my [*****?] Any help is appreciated."

Belatedly in the extreme!: nobody has answered Lucius's query of 12 years ago!

"I wrote her back an answer for to let her know, While life was in my body 'twas there I would not go; While life was in my body & there did remain, I would ay mind the girl who said 'Don't come again'."

I love this song. You can hear my rendering, if so minded, on my youtube channel
