GUEST,Van glasgow or scottish pub songs (73* d) RE: glasgow or scottish pub songs 16 Feb 04


I have looked at my Burns books and none of them confirm my story. There is always a section in any collection of Burn's poems and songs that gives an explanation of when and ehre and why they were written. I believe that I got my explanation from one of my dad's books. I will yield to your version. Totally unrelated to the thread, but if we're having a chat why not throw it in, I have a book of Burns poems which includes the "Bawdy Ballads" and was given to some one as a Sunday School prize. My own edition of the "Bawdy Ballads" was bought in a dirty book shop in Soho and handed over in a brown paper bag. How's that for tradition. More power to your elbow. If you're ever back in Livingston look me up. I'm not a bad lad just occassionally misinformed.
