Thread Name: Origins: How many versions of Geordie
Subject: RE: How many versions of Geordie
There's also a great one that the Silly Sisters sing which you'll most likely run across in the above collections, the tune is the same as the ones where Geordie' a deer thief. Anyway, the 1st verse goes something like this so you'll recognize it:

There was a battle in the North
And of Lords there many
And they have killed Sir Charles Hays
And laid the blame on Geordie

His sweetie rides to Edinborough (sorry about the spelling) bargins for his release while making plans to make "the blood would've flowed apon the green before I'd lost my Geordie. Barry
