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

Just an update, just finished completing 135 US and Canadian versions of Lord Bateman with some detailed notes: http://www.bluegrassmessengers.com/us--canada-versions-53-young-beichan.aspx

If anyone has an additional version let me know.

The name of a city/region Sentapee has been found in three versions. Anyone have an idea about that?

Oh, he sailed east and he sailed west
Until he came to Sentapee
And he was taken and cast in irons
Until his life was quite weary.

I've finished putting all the text and notes for US/Canada version up to Child 53 now,

Richie
