Thread Name: Origins: Two Sisters
Subject: Origins: Two Sisters
I finally have found a reference to the version of the "Two Sisters" song that I do. Now I need to find out where it came from and whether it is traditional - and if it is to be credited to someone.

The version that I do starts with "The flock is in, the gate is barred. My father's fowl have left the yard." I have seen both the Highlands and the Ozark mountains referred to, though the way I was introduced to the song used the Ozarks.

I know its origins are with the Child ballad, but what about this version? Who wrote/recorded it?
