Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Little Duke Arthur's Nurse (F Armstrong)
Does anyone know where the title 'Little Duke Arthur's Nurse' comes from?

According to Mainly Norfolk, the sleeve notes to 'Songs and Ballads' say that 'This anglicised set is based mainly on the version sung to Greig by Alexander Robb'. However, as far as I can see, Robb's version is called 'The Duke of Athole's Nurse' (it's version 4 in Bronson). And I can't see anyother version with the title that Frankie uses. I must be missing something, so can someone point me in the right direction?
