Subject: RE: a folk song with lots of incarnations
That's three gross mistakes in one sentence.

But I can't be arsed arguing with Wikimorons. I have tried editing stuff before and given up; it's wrestling with tar babies if you know more than the people who've edited the page before you. That's why I put my stuff on my own site.

I haven't heard it for a long time and can't listen on this machine, but I thought Gallows Pole was a version of Macpherson's Farewell? Or is that considered a variant of The Maid Freed From The Gallows, even though he isn't a maid and isn't freed?
