Thread Name: Lyr Req: When First unto This Country (Lee Valley
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: When First I came into this Country
My favourite versions of this song are by Dave Burland on his "Songs and Buttered Haycocks" album and Fairport on their "Gottle o' Gear" album. If memory serves me correctly, Dave sings the first line "When fi-irst to this country ...." and Fairport "When a-first into ...". I have seen the song in print titled "When first UNTO this country...".
