Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Battle of Harlow / ...Harlaw (#163)
Subject: RE: Lyrics of 'The Battle of Harlow' (Harlaw)
Hi, Bob - I found "Skee" in what I think is "the lyric sheet already given" - this one, right? I believe that link gets its text from a very good transcription of Child. I can't reach my Dover edition of Child just now, but "Skee" is what appears in the Loomis House edition of Child, #163 A. Can somebody check an earlier edition of Child and see what appears there?
That being said, it's "Skye" in many other versions of the song in Bronson and Greig-Duncan and others, so it looks like it could be Child's mistake.
