Subject: Lyr Req: I gave it to the weaver (?)
I have a memory of a song I used to sing many years ago, and a part of it came back to me this weekend on Mayday hearing someone play the melody. I remember it sung by Gordeanna McCullough (sp?) and the chorus goes:
I had lovers eight or nine,
They gave me gold and ribbons fine
But I was afraid my heart would tinre
So I gave it to the weaver.
More lyrics would be welcomed.
