Subject: RE: Lyr Req/Add: On Yonder Hill There Sits a Hare
I have always sung 'o'er the bogs allowed his dogs', but perhaps misinterpreted Geordie's accent. Does anyone know for certain that Geordie is singing 'haloo' and not 'allowed'? My scant research reveals that the actual hunting call is more of a 'holla' than a 'haloo'!!
