GUEST,Dan Keding Lyr Req: The Weeping Lass (5) The Weeping Lass 09 Sep 01


Neighbors, There is a story found in the tradition about a Weeping Lass that watches her friends dance while she cries at the crosssroads for her dead lover. He returns, apparently alive. They ride off to his home only to find its a graveyard and that she has kept him awake with her crying. She runs away, he grabs at her scarf, she tells her story they find the scarf sticking out of the grave, when they dig down its in the corpse's hand. Very dramatic story. Does anyone know which ballad its from and can they direct me to or send me the lyrics???

Thanks

Dan
