Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Bonny Woodhall
I'm beginning to suspect that the version in the Greig- Duncan collection wasn't a traditional version. There's no tune, date collected, place collected, or name of singer. Greig sometimes published old songs in the Buchan Observer articles that he hadn't collected, in order to stir his reader's memories to think about what they could remember. I suspect his copy was from a printed source he found some place.
