Thread Name: Origins: How many versions of Geordie
Subject: RE: How many versions of Geordie
Does anyone know the source of Peggy Seeger's US version or Geordie. On Blood and Roses, third CD. It's posted above it begins:

As I walked over old London's Bridge
It was in the morning early
There I espied a pretty fair maid
Lamenting for her Geordie

She said "now saddle me my bly,
go bridle him right gaily,
and I will ride this live long night
and beg for the life of Geordie."
