GUEST,Some bloke Misheard folk song lyrics (51* d) RE: Misheard folk song lyrics 19 Mar 19

I played occasionally in a ceilidh band in my youth. The music was simple enough that you don’t have to go into detail but I never really got into the names of dances.

So I genuinely thought he said “Strip the Widow.”

Came in handy playing jigs and reels in a duo I suppose as we always gave tunes daft names even if we knew an “official” name.
