Tattie Bogle Lyr Req: Halloween (Violet Jacob) (22) RE: Lyr Req: Halloween (Violet Jacob) 24 Oct 20

Not sure why the admin person on the Mudcat Facebook thread found it necessary to close down the thread to further comments after the lyrics had been posted: I had seen the thread earlier in the day and was going to go back and post the lyrics, but someone beat me to it. And, sure, that was answering the OP's original request for the lyrics, but there could have been further discussion, such as "What is your favourite version of this song?"
I'd find it hard to choose: so many good versions about: Jean Ritchie and Jean Redpath were both mentioned on Facebook. But Jim Reid himself sang it: then there are other great versions (some of which are mentioned by Jim Dixon above) - by Sangsters (Anne Murray), Sheena Wellington, Lucy Pringle, and West Lothian singing group, Tryst. And we'll no doubt hear a few other people sing it this week.
