GUEST,big tim Lyr Req: Edom o' Gordon (Ewan Maccoll) (15) RE: Lyr Req: Edom o' Gordon (Ewan Maccoll) 01 Nov 08

'It fell aboot the Martinmas time', (feast of St Martin), this was the 11th of November, so the very first line at least is accurate!

I can't understand MacColl's attitude to a song about events that happened in 1571 but he was entitled to his opinion.

For anyone unfamiliar with the song, it's a classic Scots ballad and that's saying something. Check out Malinky's terrific recording, the band has its own website.
