Thread Name: Lyr Req: Montrose (Steeleye Span)
Subject: RE: Montrose Lyrics
G'day,
"Montrose" as sung by Steeleye is not "Haugh's of Cromdale".
The album (and another Aussie release with a shorter mix) claim the song is trad, but Steeleye often substantially rewrote "trad" songs. As I noted above I suspect "Montrose" is largely Steeleye's work. Would still like lyrics though!

Cheers,
Alan
