PeadarOfPortsmouth Lyr Req: Newfoundland Mermaid song (49) RE: Lyr Req: Newfoundland Mermaid song 21 Dec 07


GUEST,Karen,

Just FYI, The Mermaid that oldhippie refers to is actually one collected by Francis Childs. According to the contemplator's site regarding Childs' ballads, the song is from the 1700s.

Not sure that the place of origin is actually Newfoundland, but if anyone knows perhaps they could chime in.

Peter
