Subject: RE: Origins: Seventeen Come Sunday/Waukrife Mammy
Hi,

Here are the British versions so far, I'm missing a few. If anyone has info about the Amelia and Jane Harris song, "Where Are Ye Gaun" I'd like to see it. Not sure if this version has been found (ref. Emily Lyle). I didn't do every one stanza text available. Any other versions please post.
