GUEST,Jim Carroll Lyr Req: Get away from the window... (16) RE: Lyr Req: Get away from the window... 26 Oct 07

We recorded a cante-fable version from west Clare storyteller Francie Kennelly in which a wife warns her lover outside the window that her husband is not away an expected, by singing the verse;
"Go from my window, you silly young man...." etc.
The story was included on a cassette of storytelling issued by the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library, entitled .... 'And that's My Story,' which is an anthology of storytelling from Britain and Ireland.
