Thread Name: Lyr Req: Newfoundland Mermaid song
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Newfoundland Mermaid song
Even if Catherine does not know to look for this thread or doesn't get online often, I would love to find this one. I believe I have heard it too; there were also, I think, some lines about putting [his] head on a tortoiseshell pillow and being fed from a scallop shell dish. Considering how well known mermaids are in art and traditional stories, there are surprisingly few mermaid songs and I would be very glad of another.
