Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ploughman Lads (from Nic Jones)
I remember hearing a recording of this song, sung by a Scots traditional singer, years ago.

On 'Songs of Courtship', Vol. 1 of the 'Folk Songs of Britain' set of LPs which Topic released in the 60s (which had been released earlier by the American label, Caedmon), is a song called 'My Darling Ploughboy' sung by Jimmy McBeath of Elgin, Moray. I'm wondering if this is the recording I'm thinking of? Unfortunately, I can't check because (a) I appear to have lost the notes to that particular LP and (b) I no longer own a turntable to play it on!
