Thread Name: Chord Req: Four rode by (Ian Tyson)
Subject: RE: Chord Req: Four rode by (Ian Tyson)
One comment I do have about this great, great song by Ian. I've seen several sets of lyrics where they say "Ussher in those days was keeping order in the district". I am not certain, but I believe that it's not Ussher but, rather, "high sheriff". It's sung pretty quickly, and my ear is not great; but, after puzzling over it many, many years, I have become convinced it is "high sheriff" and not Ushher. Anyone certain about this??
