Tam Lin has been around for hundreds of years, stealing the heart / maidenhead of women who live on the Scottish Borders and squandering their honest affection to get himself out of a rather nasty hole he's in with the Queen of Fairies (doubtless after mucking about with her affections too). Not much sympathy for the bounder in this household, Janet's the star of the show, staying true to her heart and her principals right to the moment the ground swallows her up with her unborn infant too...

High drama, deep history. For more factual information look the song up on the internet there's a wealth of information.

This is our arrangement, it features on our debut album "The Kimberleys" available from here...
