That said, this etext has been assembled from the best available resources on the Internet. This version was built using a Child corpus constructed by Cathy Lynn Preston at the University of Colorado ( You can also view page images of the 1860 version at the Making of America site at the University of Michigan [External site]: Hundreds Of Years Old, These Songs Tour Like New.

This is a truly magical ballad. It was first mentioned in The Complaynt of Scotland in 1549 but no words were published until Herd put a fragment into his Ancient and Modern Scots Songs in 1769. Janet is a puzzle; on the one hand she is clearly a virgin, by virtue of the gold she wears in her hair, and the threat in the first verse is like the warning to the maiden in the analogous Broomfield Wager. Fairport Convention recorded Tam Lin with Sandy Denny singing on October 29, 1968.
Martin Carthy And Dave Swarbrick:Banks Of Sweet Primroses Lyrics. Martin Carthy And Dave Swarbrick As I walked out one fine summer's morningFor to view the fields and to take the air,Down by the banks of the sweet prim-a-rosesThere I beheld a most wondrous fair.
Oh, three long steps I stepped up to her,Not knowing her as she passed me by.I stepped up to her thinking for to view her,She appeared to me like some virtuous bride. I says, "Fair maid, where are you going? And what's the occasion of all your grief? I will make you as happy as any ladyIf you will grant me one small relief. " "Stand off, stand off, you are the false deceiver,You are the false deceitful man I know 'tis plain.For it is you that has caused my poor heart to wanderAnd in your comfort lies no refrain. " Martin Carthy And Dave Swarbrick:Jack Orion Lyrics. Martin Carthy And Dave Swarbrick Jack Orion was as good fiddler as ever fiddled on a stringAnd he could drive young women mad by the tune his wires would sing But he would fiddle the fish out of salt water, water from bare marble stoneOr the milk from out of a maiden's breast though baby she had none.
