Subject: RE: Origins: Ilkey Moor Batat, What does it mean?
I remember the first line as "Weer was ta bahn when Ah saw thee?" - anglice "Where were you agoing to when I espied you?" I got it from an article in The Dalesman in the fifties, I think the writer had had a lot to do with the original choir trip!
