Subject: Words to Ballad of Sir Edmund Spence?

I stumbled into this site while looking up "The Ball of Kerriemuir" and now I'm trying to find this; I'm not sure of the title, but the first lines are:

The good King sits in Dunfermlin town drinking the blood red wine

I had it on a Buffy St Marie album lo these many years ago and fragments of the melody haunt me still. I would really like to have the words.

Thanks for any help any of you might offer.

It's Child #58. If you search for Spens, you'll come up with two hits, one of which is irrelevant.If you search for #58, you'll get two versions.

The words are from a poem: try looking in a poetry index of lines Most UK kids do it a school and know quite a lot of the words (well they did some years ago!)

by the way its probably Kirriemuir for your other ballad
