CAN ANY HELP WITH ME WITH THE LYRICS FOR THE ABOVE SONG? I HAVE THE SONG, BUT CAN NOT MAKE OUT ALL OF THE WORDS. TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE THIS IS CHILD BALLAD 106, BUT THE LYRICS ARE NOT THE SAME. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIND THE LYRICS FOR A WHILE NOW, BUT NO ONE, NOT EVEN THE LOCAL LIBRARIES CAN HELP. THANK YOU, IAN (NEW TO MUDCAT)

Ian,
nearly every singer who does it sings a different version and some of them even sing different versions on different CDs. So tell us which singer or CD you mean and we might be of more help.
If the singer happens to be Martin Carthy there are two of his versions here (you'll find the second version with two more clicks).

Wolfgang

To: Wolfgang. Thanks for your reply, Martin Carthy is the singer, and the lyrics are those I am looking for. I've searched the web for the lyrics and got onto some unexpected websites. A friend sent me to Mudcat and told me how to create a thread. What he didn't tell me, until afterwards, was not to use capital letters. I'll know better next time. Sadly, I'm at work and unable to check who the singer was or give any clue to the lyrics. Again, thanks a lot. Ian

The ballad was written by Laurence Price in 1656. The original version is in the Laurence Price file on my website. www.erols.com/olsonw
