Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Lads o' the Fair (Brian McNeill)
Subject: Lads O'The Fair
Could someone translate or perhaps explain some of the words and phrases in the Lads O'The Fair? My specifics are ~ what is "claith"? the meaning of "..selling the provost's dochter"? "siller" (silver)? "...kye"? ....for the feein' noo, man;" I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
