GUEST,Murray on Saltspring Lyr Add: Rares Hill / Reres Hill / Rare's Hill (30) RE: LYRC ADD and ?? - Back of Rare's Hill 13 Jan 01

There's a pretty good version [tho slightly bowdlerised I think] in Ord's great collection of Bothy Songs and Ballads (1930; and reprinted 30 years or so ago, maybe still in print)--page 156, "The Back o' Rarey's Hill". His note says "Rarey's or Rarie's hill, the locus of the incidents in this song, is situated near to Broughty Ferry." That "never prosper" stanza, btw, is really a bit of the *English* [that's supposed to be italics] song of "The White Cockade".
