Thread Name: Looking to ID This Song Lyric (Golden Vanity)
Subject: Looking to ID This Song Lyric
To My colleagues,

For the detectives in all of you, a challenge:

I have this song lyric that has been in my head for over 30 years, and I've never been able to track it down, so I figured this forum HAS TO BE THE BEST PLACE TO FIND IT!

It is a lyric from what sounds like a Scottish or maritime song. I only have lyric fragments from a memory of hearing the song being sung to me during a bus ride when I was six years old...

Here are the lyrics I can remember:

CHORUS: "..sinking in the Lowland, Lowland, Lowland, Sinking in the Lowland Sea."

STORY Something about a rivalry between two men and a woman, where one was going to take this woman "for his bonny, bonny bride" The other man might have been the Captain of this ship that is going down instead of giving her up to this rival, he sank the ship...I THINK...

IF ANYONE has a clue as to the name/music/lyrics for this song, please get in touch with me ASAP!

Thanks JB Michaels
