The Mermaid & Tam Lin

Here's a performance of "The Mermaid" a folk song I used in the last installment of "The Darlington Curse." The song is #289 of the Child Ballads

I adapted Child Ballad #39 - "Tam Lin" into a play several years ago, and now wonder if it cursed me.

The lyrics in this video clip of "The Mermaid" are slightly different from the version I used in Darlington.

And speaking of Darlington, and yet again.
