Subject: RE: Origin: The Verdant Braes of Skreen
Yes i learned it off the Corries and The Promise of the Day album. Bu the time I nought it - the version of the Corries withjust two of them playing had their own TV series - so the repackaging of the The Promise of the Day on the Music for Pleasure label was a desperate cash in. I bought it at the local supermarket.
The Corries version was only three verses
Oh I won't sit on he grass she said
No lover will I be of thine
For I hear ye lie wi' a corner lass
And you heart's no longer mine, she said
And your heart's no longer mine.
I seem to remember Mick Hipkess of Drowsy Maggie singing a similar version.
