Thread Name: Child Ballads: US Versions
Subject: RE: Child Ballads: US Versions
Have you got the 4 versions in Flanders, Ancient Ballads Traditionally Sung in New England, Vol 1? Some of these are Edward hybrids and one is collected by Barry but in Vermont. The first version has a wonderful 27 stanzas. It's from George Edwards of Burlington, Vermont. The same version appeared in 'Ballads Migrant in New England'. This Barry version is also in Bulletin of the Folk Song Society of the North East Vol XI 1960.
