While we're on the subject, anyone familiar with the tune with the chorus"the bonnie wee lasses answer was to don't come again". It's off his welcome here Kind Stranger album, and the third verse has me stumped: I wrote her back an answer, for to let her know, my [life was in my bondie?] and with her I could not go. [my life was in my bondie?], and while it does remain, I will lie by my [*****?] Any help is appreciated.
P.S. While I'm never certain of Paul Brady's tunings, I play some of his tunes in a modified DADGAD tuning with the lowest pitched strings dropped to CG(DGAD). Arthur McBride seems to play well for me here.
