Bride’s Farewell

[Steeleye Span / Peter Knight]

This song was sung by Maddy Prior (verses) and Peter Knight (leading the chorus) on Steeleye Span’s CD They Called Her Babylon. Peter Knight commented in the album’s sleeve notes:

I composed this 5/4 melody and then researched a variety of traditional song books to find a set of lyrics that I felt were sympathetic to the tune. I adapted the lyrics from the original version.
