Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bogie's Bonny Belle
The words of the first verse causing confusion--- ---tae cairt or harry or pleugh---" "Cairt " is obvious, as is "pleugh"; the word "harry " means "harrow" ---the process of dragging a harrow across a seeded field in order to bury the grain. One of my favourite bothy ballads.
