GUEST,Ewan McVicar Lyr Req: The Singing Games (The Corries) (20) RE: Lyr Req: The Singing Games (The Corries) 05 Jun 19

Offhand I would say all these lyric versions were culled from J R Ritchie's 1960s books The Singing Street and the Golden City.
Ritchie got his versions mostly from Edinburgh and Leith schoolchildren. He gave some tunes.
Jack, I did give one tune for the core verses, labelled as The Wind Blows High, got by Hamish Henderson from Craigmillar kids in 1954.
