Subject: RE: Chorus songs for ballad singers
Child 65 - Lady Maisry, or Bonnie Suzie Clelland/
the one collected from Mr Wetherill in Bucks by R Vaughan Williams has every other line: Hey My Love, Ho My love; Ho my love so early; Bonny Lady Maisry's to be burnt in bonnie Dundee.
And such a jolly incongruous tune considering it is a viciously male chauvinist and anti-Scots song.
