Hello, all. I was hoping someone could send or direct me to the lyrics for the Niamh Parsons version of Two Sisters. I checked the listings here and they weren't quite the ones I was seeking.

Thanks for any help you might offer.

No luck with Parsons' specific lyrics. Anybody else?

If you were to type, for example, two sisters into the "Digitrad and Forum Search" box on the main Forum page, you would find a lot of previous discussions of some of the many versions of this song.  At least one of them would be this: Lyr Req: I'll be true unto my love

This is a traditional American set of the song, recorded by Clannad amongst others (so that many people now imagine it to be Irish); I suspect that Ms. Parsons learned her set from that Clannad record, so it may be what you are looking for.  If you are interested in looking further into the background, there is quite a big list of links to material here and elsewhere in this previous discussion:

You can find the song on the album "In My Prime" (Track 9). You could always buy the album and take down the words like everyone else.
