Subject: RE: MEANING of ' gaudie' in Sweet Kumadee??
The Child glossary gives "gaudie" as "stately", "ostentatious", "dashing" or "colourful" - all make sense to me.
It appears to be a reference to the ballad before 'Vanitee' - 'George Aloe and the Sweepstake' (Child 285), which is about a French ship
