Thread Name: Water Is Wide - First American Version
Subject: RE: Water Is Wide - First American Version
I know it doesn't add much to the fascinating information being given about this song/song(s) here, but I thought I'd mention that the I wish I wish verse quoted by Dick Greenhaus above is (also?) from The Butcher Boy. Is this another related song, or is it just a floating verse.
By the way its not in the version in the DT, which (by coincidence?) also comes from Peggy Seeger.
