Thread Name: Lyr Req: Barbara Allen (different versions)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Barbara Allen' different versions
Caroline's favorite version is from Kidson's Traditional Tunes and begins:

'Twas in and about the Martinmas time,
When the green leaves they were falling,
Sir John Graeme from the north countrie,
Fell in love with Barbara Allen.

She likes the change of season.
