GUEST,murray@mpce.mq.edu.au What is a Lindsey petticoat? (8) What is a Lindsey petticoat? 01 Oct 00


On the thread Hedy West someone asked what a Barlow knife was answered pretty completely. I'll try my luck with this one. In the Folk-Legacy album "Old Times & Hard Times" she sings a song called "Polly" in which Polly is being seduced by gifts, including a lace petticoat. "My old Lindsey petticoat is sufficient for me." What is a Lindsey petticoat? (Of course, I am not sure of the spelling.)

Thanks,

Murray
