Hi folks

I've just checked the archive for the above, and only found a very Scottish version under the name Glenkindie. It's obviously the same basic song as Martin Carthy, Bert Jansch, Fairport, Pentangle etc recorded, but quite a lot of mutations too. Are the words to the 'English' version around anywhere? Anyone know more about it please? What's going on with the names... is the Orion / -gerion the same word? etc.

Cheers, Simon
