Jerry Friedman Question on a TWO SISTERS song (18) Lyr Add: THE TWO SISTERS 22 Sep 98

Thanks, Maelgwyn, for telling me where the name of the band "Boiled in Lead" came from. (One of its members is or was Steven Brust, one of my favorite fantasy writers. The band is also mentioned in his friend Emma Bull's classic fantasy The War for the Oaks, which many readers of this forum would like.)

See if you like this, Frank:

The miller, he took her gay gold ring [etc.]
And then he pushed her in again [etc.]

He gave to his wife the gay gold ring [etc.]
And the hair to the fiddler to make his strings. [etc.]

The fiddler played at the wedding day. [etc.]
The fiddle said, "Sister did me slay." [etc.]

The miller was hanged etc.
