Thread Name: Origins: Edward the Beauty and Boast of Athlone
Subject: RE: Origins: Edward the Beauty and Boast of Athlone
My version begins

Come all ye nymphs and ye swains, sympathise in my sorrow

and is very similar to the corrected version above, with no second verse.
My version came from Mary McAndrew in Liverpool, 40yrs ago, but I don't know where she got it. I have never heard a recording of it, nor have I ever heard anyone else sing it.

Happy to see this thread!
