Subject: Lyr Add: LORD RENDAL (from Tony Rose)
From: Roberto

I miss just one word. What colour were those eels? Please, help. From On Banks of Green Willow:

Where have you been, Rendal my son?
Where have you been, my sweet pretty one?
I've been to my sweetheart's, mother make my bed soon
For I'm sick to my heart, and fain would lie down

What did she give you, Rendal my son?
What did she give you, my sweet pretty one?
She gave me some eels, mother make my bed soon
For I'm sick to my heart, and fain would lie down

What colour were they, Rendal my son?
What colour were they, my sweet pretty one?
All ......** and speckled, mother make my bed soon
For I'm sick to my heart, and fain would lie down

Where did she get them, Rendal my son?
Where did she get them, my sweet pretty one?
From hedges, from ditches, mother make my bed soon
For I'm sick to my heart, and fain would lie down

Where are your greyhounds, Rendal my son?
Where are your greyhounds, my sweet pretty one?
They swelled and they died, mother make my bed soon
For I'm sick to my heart, and fain would lie down

I fear you were poisoned, Rendal my son
I fear you were poisoned, my sweet pretty one
Yes I'm poisoned, mother make my bed soon
For I'm sick to my heart, and fain would lie down

**(sounds similar to speckled, if speckled is correct, but with an "i" sound instead of the "e" of speckled)

I heard "All spickled and speckled, mother" for that line. I've also heard it "spickled and spackled." I haven't heard it as "Rendal," only as Randal.

SRS

Thank you, Stilly River Sage. Rendal: because that is the way the name is written in the title of the ballad on Tony Rose's lp cover.
