Subject: RE: Lyr Req:Miller's Lovely Daughter[for Gibran Lewis]
From the line she quoted, Gibran did not seem to be seeking for "Allan Water." The line, or verse rather, would fit perfectly to the tune of the volkslied "Das gebrochene ringlein," a broken token song featuring a miller's daughter. Maybe the song she remembers was loosely based on that.
