Recording Information
Ballad Title Two strings to a Bow; or, The cunning Archer, / Being A pleasant new ditty of a Souldier, that had two Lasses at one time / That dearly loved him, and how he requited their kindness / This lusty Souldier having been / Ten years in Scotland, and near seen / A London Lass, resolv'd to try, / How much they priz'd Virginity. / He laies close siege to two, and stormes / There Forts, but yet to marry scorns.
Tune Imprint To an excellent Scotish tune, call'd Gilderoy.
Standard Tune Title Gilderoy
