Subject: RE: Lyr Req: My bonny Lad, lost at sea?
Just checked the vinyl it wasn't on either of the 2 I suggested, but I'm sure I have some version of it before the Salt of the Earth recording. (That may mean it's on cassette. Even worse to check than the vinyl!)
I thought it would have been posted here at Mudcat, but I can't find it at a quick search, but that nice Joe Offer has a copy on his site from the folkinfo archive: Maa Bonny Lad.
Roud No. 204 lists only 2 sources: Whittaker: North Countrie Ballads Songs & Pipe-Tunes 2 (1922) (the version at Joe Offer's site) and Walton: Songs & Ballads of Northern England (1950?)
