GUEST,Lynn Koch Lyr Req/Add: The Valiant Soldier (Pete Seeger) (5) Lyr Req: The Valiant Soldier (Pete Seeger's vers) 16 Feb 08


Here's another one. I'm transcribing Pete Seeger's version of "The Valiant Soldier" from "Champlain Valley Songs" (Folkways), and I can't figure out one word in the first verse:

"'Tis of a valiant soldier who lately came from war.
He courted a baron's daughter of honor *duke* and fair..."

It sure sounds like he's singing 'duke'there. Does anyone know for sure?
