Thread Name: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 3
Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 3
Thanks Mick and Steve.
I'd like the text from The Green Mountain Songster and Barry's version. Eddy's version in Ballads & Songs from Ohio is a version of Katie Morey (Shrewd Maiden).
I have one US version with no source published in 1968 titled the Morning dew. It begins:
There was a farmer's son,
Who led a humble life
One day in May he strolled away,
To find himself a wife.
Singing blow away the morning dew,
The grey morning dew.
Anyone know the source of this?
