Subject: RE: Choosing a Child Ballad for Study
"Lord Randal" - "Billy Boy" reminds me of a Scottish-English version called "The Wee Little Croodlin' Doo which is in Branson. That name always made me laugh. Also don't forget the many American versions of Lord Randal. And Canadian. Malcolm Douglas pointed out versions in the Max Hunter Collection, but Lomax, Randolph, etc., etc. have more.
