Barbara, you are right, I just had it spinning. From the notes (that I read reversed at the end) I had thought it was the English version, until listening closer & a few times over. I listened particular to the parts you questioned. Try & see if this may not be what their singing.

To Bantridge he (has) been

To keep her for a day
But all (is fast), she's right at last

The rest sounds like what you have, except I can't make out the part in line

She (counted) (tatted) up the things he took.

Good Luck with it, it's a beautiful song. Barry
