Looking for the lyrics for The Twa Corbies as performed by Old Blind Dogs on their "Live" album. Thanks in advance for the help.

There have been a number of previous discussions of this song including links and references to the words.
If you go to the box at the top of this page - Lyrics & Knowledge Search - and type in "corbies" you should bring up a list of links to four sets of lyrics found in the Digital Tradition plus about 200 comments within previous threads.
From these you should be able to find out all you wish to know, and probably plenty which you did not need to know.
Many mudcatters would be able to give you links and sets of words, but if you know HOW to navigate this site, it will make it easier for you to find information in future. It is usually not difficult to find information which has been previously discussed, and a search often saves time with a simple lyric request such as yours.
If you need something more obscure, then most 'catters will try to help, some with internet searches and others by using their own resources.
Welcome to the Mudcat, and if you like it, please visit again.
Quack!!!!
Geoff the Duck!

I have no idea of the version, but if you will put Child#26 in the "Lyrics and Knowledge" search box you will find a lot of versions here.

Aaw Sorcha - how can you battle Sychronicity, the Small World Principle and the Cardboard Cutout Theory of Existence (Copyright GtD - 1981).
I am not going to stop typing song help to people just in case somebody thinks that you might be typing somewhere at the same time ;-)
Quack!!!!!
GtD!

I just started to type :-
Is he a Cardboard Cutout? when my browser window exploded to be replaced by THIS ONE .
I don't know if the Internet is actively hijacking Sychronicity for its own purposes (or even Porpoises!) but out there in Cyberspace Nobody can hear you SCREAM..........
I didn't rate Footloose, but I thought he was okay in Tremors.....
Quack!!!!!!1

It was Morris Blythman, AKA Thurso Berwick, who wedded the Breton tune Al Alarc'h (The Swan) to the words of The Twa Corbies during the fifties.

I crosslinked to previous threads and e-mailed the requestor. Is the Blind Dogs version in the previous thread?
