“Young Edward, where did you stay last night?
Pray tell me where you’ve been.
I’ve never seen you drink a drop;
Pray tell me where you’ve been.”

“Oh, Father, cruel old Father,
What have you done with him?
Have you murdered my young Edward bold,
Who ruled the lowlands low?”

Recorded by Mark Wilson and Ken Irwin, Chattaroy, WV, 3/03/76. Previously unissued.
