Lyr Req: Bonny May (June Tabor)

I am going crazy finding the lyrics to "Bonny May," track No. 3 on "Airs and Graces" (Shanachie 79055). Does anyone have 'em?

Oh Catrin,

Congratulations!!! :0)

You have now been awarded the Mudcat Certificate Part 1 (subsection 34)for finding, linking and directing guests to an earlier thread.

With Honours, because you did it politely too!

However I'm still not convinced that the words there completely match what June sang . . . although the differences are too trivial to worry about.

A wonderful recording (I was playing the CD last night); as great now as it was 23 years ago!

I have this record on vinyl and would be veryinterested to know if the lyrics to any or all of the other songs are available anywhere? (Yes soem are Childs Ballads, but the lyrics mutate with every singer's version). I am particularly interested in "Queen Among the Heather" and "Young Waters"

thanks in advance if anyone can help!

Noreen - I wish I could do 'floaties'. That'll come under Mudcat Certificate Part 2. I suppose....

Peg,

I am sorry, your request seemed to pass me by somehow. Can I suggest you start a new thread (with the name of the song you want to find lyrics for in the title of the thread). That way, you'll catch the attention of people who know he words and who want to show off (like me - sometimes). Sometimes it sparks off a really interesting discussion too.

Cheers,

Catrin

Song BONNIE LASS AMONG THE HEATHER and a thread with discussion and slightly different lyrics here.

The first is from Dick Gaughan, and the second is Archie Fisher. No June Tabor, but perhaps one is virtually the same?

thanks for the suggestion Catrin; very good point! and thanks, Jeri, for those lyrics!!! I can't wait to start working on this song now...something new to sing at the NH Mudcat gathering...

Gosh I love this place.

June Tabor sang Belle Stewart's version, as did Archie Fisher, so the second link is the one.
