Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Rose of Allendale
well I have checked the many versions being sung and originally written to find that I am the only one who sings "lea" rather than the original "sea" made more sense to have "lea" ~ can only assume that the original song place was by the seaside!

I was a bit unhappy that the song should become a sea song

Memory plays tricks of course
