GeorgeH Origins: William Taylor (84* d) RE: William Taylor... 30 Jul 01

It's another of those songs where June Tabor sings my favourite version . . I thought I'd posted the words to her version here sometime (but it might have been over on Usenet!).

She use to swear she sung the song for the delight of the lines:

She rose and shot her false willie
and the bride at his right hand

(note to USians - willie is also a familiar term for the male sex organ . . . )
