Subject: Lyric req: The Gabalundi(?) Man
I'm wondering if anyone has the lyrics for a song I taped off of the Thistle and Shamrock radio show on NPR. It's a Scottish song called the Gabalundi (spelling?) Man. It's about a Scottish king who disguises himself as a peddler and goes out among his people. He meets a peasant woman and falls in love with her. I don't get a lot of the words on my taped version of the song. Hoping someone knows this one. Thanks!
