about

Lucy first heard this traditional ballad sung by the celebrated Scots singer Gordeanna McCulloch. The song was originally collected as a fragment by Peter Shepheard from Duncan Johnstone of Birnam in June 1967; Peter later added some verses and lines from other variants, yielding the complete song below. Duncan and his wife, Martha ‘Peasie’ Reid, had many such fine songs and ballads.

(Roud 4, Greig-Duncan 2:212, Child 73)
