Subject: Lyr Req: Silver Dagger variant
From: Penny S.

I recently caught up with an old episode of Inspector George Gently with a plot like a Border ballad, and a singer of folk songs, and the song "Silver Dagger" as an integral part of the plot. But I had the impression it had been subtly altered to fit the plot better, only reaching this impression after I had deleted the programme to make space for when I am away.
Did anyone spot this, know the singer, or catch the words - it made more sense for the mother to be of the man in the song than the woman as in traditional versions? (She was a vicious piece of work with a dagger of a tongue.)
There was a lot of about the sense of entitlement of the aristocracy, and a nice aside at the end when the lower class man who had been raised via public school university with money from the aristos was practicing his political pitch, with an echo of a certain NE MP from Fettes school.

Guest had the spelling slightly wrong. It should be Buckle. You can find clips and info on Youtube.

My Mom is 90 and remembers an old song , some of the words are- my mamma's in the boxcar up ahead- about a child on a train and traveling with her mother's coffin.
