I'm trying to find the lyrics and chords to this song. It's about a girl that is supposed to marry a sulton but she loves Anakee Gordon.
Can't find it anywhere!

Try Annachie Gordon - it's on the Digitrad twice, lovely balled but not for a finishing song!

The song is Annachie Gordon. Dunno if it's in the DT cos it's not working but there have been previous threads about it, mostly IIRC, about Mary Black nicking Nic Jones' arrangement.

It's on Nic Jones Unearthed obtainable direct from Mollie Music.

Child #239 is in the DT as Annachie Gordon and I have heard it as Lord Saltoun, rather than "a Sulton". There are also threads on it.

Here's a link to a website w/ the lyrics:

Child Ballad 239

If that's not what you want, I have a lyric sheet from Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen's "Live in Concert" cd w/ a lovely version of the song. It's quite long, so I don't want to transcribe the lyrics. I will, however, photocopy them & mail them to you if you'll send me your address or, if you prefer, send me your email address & I'll try scanning them.

best,

Barbara

I should imagine that Annie has heard the song on a record and would prefer, to begin with at least, something like that rather than getting bogged down in older, more authentic texts from printed sources. Most are available here in any case, though the server is up and down like a blasted yo-yo today, which makes both posting and using the onsite search engine quite difficult.

As I've mentioned before, virtually all modern recordings of the song derive from Nic Jones' revision of text and tune. Certainly that's true of Mary Black's arrangement (which has led many people to imagine, wrongly, that it's an Irish song), Loreena McKennitt's, Cindy Mangsen's and a great many more. (You can tell who learned the song -at one or more removes- from the Mary Black record, as she misheard what Nic sang and substituted the meaningless "Harking" for the original "Buchan"). All this has been said before in previous discussions here. One reason there are so many is that hardly anybody knows how to spell the hero's name, which isn't terribly surprising.

Here is the song and 7 of the threads of the song. Try and learn the use of the Lyric Search box at the top. There are many variant spellings you might have to try, OR pick a specific line which is NOT ambiguous to search with. Anyway...

Malcolm, I wonder how many songs people have learned wrong from Mary Black recordings. She has a beautiful voice and I can certainly understand why she's so popular; but I do wonder if she understands what she's singing, since she regularly screws up lyrics so badly.

Maybe she's just a computer program invented by Microsoft to sing meaningless words in a mechanically cloying style, scientically designed to bring a tear to the eye and a sigh to the breast...

Ah, just like Lizzie Cornish. She's even got sibling clones and an irritating tendency to regurgitate just like a random spam generator.

..."she regularly screws up lyrics so badly."....

Almost as regularly (and as badly) as the DT ...
