Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bogie's Bonny Belle
I have just glanced at the thread but have seen no reference to the Bogie. This small river runs north through Huntly, Aberdeenshire. It joins the River Isla (not the much bigger River Isla in Co. Angus), then joins the River Spey, then the North Sea. Haven't noticed either any reference to Christy Moore's pretty straight recording of the song.
Incidentally, the song is all wrong: the most beautiful and by far the most sexy woman ever to come out of Huntly was Margaret C.
