GUEST,Pat Origins: Gairdner and the Plooman (Jean Redpath) (17) RE: Bush of Rue (Jean Redpath) 04 Jul 06

For anyone not familiar with this song, the recording I heard starts off with this verse (the earlier verses must the fragmentary Grieg version):

The first time that I saw my love,
It was under a bush o' rue.
And aye the sweeter that she sang,
The nearer the bush I drew.

And includes all those below it, except perhaps the second to last one, which I don't recognize.
