Thank you Michael, it is a pleasure to contend with someone so generous. By the way, I completely approve of new interpretations, or even misunderstandings, of traditional songs; how else did variants arise? The changes indicate changes of mentality or experience as distance or time passes. It's only in the matter of the context in which the song was made that I would insist on the exercise of science. In all else, flights of fancy are not only to be condoned but encouraged. Folklore aspires to be disciplined and objective, singing is an Art; the rules are different.
