Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 2
I'm working on Child 68 Young Hunting- US versions. I need lyrics for Jean Ritchie's version- here's the first verse:
Folk songs of the southern Appalachians as sung by Jean Ritchie
Light down, light down, lovin' Henry she cried
And stay all night with me;
The golden cords all around my bed
Shall be supplied to thee.
I also need the lyrics to Jess Young's Tennesse Band (Lovin' Henry, recorded in 1929).
Were the Barry lyrics from 1929 teh source of "The False Lady" text is here at Mudcat?
