Thread Name: Your favorite version of Barbara Allen
Subject: RE: Your favorite version of Barbara Allen
Have always loved Sarah Makem's haunting version, which includes this verse:

'Look at my bedfoot,' he said,
'And there you'll find them lying.
Bloody sheets and bloody shirts
I sweat for Barbara Allen.'

You can hear it on the Musical Traditions 3 CD set (MTCD 353-5).
