Thread Name: Origins: The Magpie (David Dodds)
Subject: RE: The Magpie
Coincidence time!

I heard the Magpie a few years ago when 'Belles of the North' stayed with my morris side on a UK tour, and have been trying to get the words ever since. On my first visit to these pages, I find the words and a thread on the subject!

I have nothing to add on the origin, but I wonder if anyone out there could post the tune - I cant remember that either.
