Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Cruel Sister (esp. Old Blind Dogs)
Subject: The Cruel Sister (esp. Old Blind Dogs)
Not really a lyric request... more a question ABOUT the lyrics...

There's the repeating line that sounds like
"Lay the bairn to the bonny broom"

1) Do you think that's REALLY the line?

2) If not, what do ya think the line is?

3) If so, what the HELL does it mean??
