Note: Child #251. Alan Lomax: "Sung by John Strachan with Hamish Henderson joining refrains – almost ten minutes long. He was singing from a handwritten ms given him by someone years ago. He has forgotten whom. Thought the song was too long but agreed anyhow to do it to please us."
About the session: Bothy ballads sung and stories told by Aberdeenshire farmer and singer John Strachan.
