Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bonny May (from June Tabor)
Subject: RE: Lyrics of Bonny May? as sung by J. Tabor
A few other minor things:
In the second verse, June sings "He's asked of her the way..."
In the 5th verse, it should be "He's soon o'rta'en..."
I still think it's kyne or kine, not kye, but I'll check our scottish dictionary...
And it might be "Ere that he'd taken the one that he did..." I'll give it a listen again.
Lamarca/Mary, any thoughts on these?
