Subject: RE: LYR clarification: The Gardener by House Band
Ah, yes, I thought I knew this song as:
Proud Maisrie stands at her faither's duir
As straught's a wi'ow wand
An' sine there cam a gairdner bold
Wi' a red rose i' his hand, his hand
Wi' a red rose i' his hand.
Though I suspect Cuillion could fix this so it was better. And you notice that hand and wand rhyme, too.
Can't remember if I heard it, or it was written out this way.
