Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 7
Hi,

My question is: Should "New River Shore" versions be considered part of Bronson's Child 7A: "The Lady and Dragoon" which is the "Bold Soldier"?

Although Randolph (and Art Thieme BTW) lump them, Bronson never mentions the connection- doesn't include New River Shore versions, Sharp found versions of both in the Appalachians and doesn't mention a connection, the Brown Collection also lists then separately and does not mention a connection.

What do you think??
