BIRK AND GREEN HOLLIN. Scottish. "A most distinctive Border melody, to which a version of 'The Wife Wrapt in a Wether's Skin' was sung (Williamson)." A song called "Hollin, Green Hollin" was set to the tune in Boulton-MacLeod's Songs of the North (vol. II, 30). It begins:
Alone in greenwood must I roam,
Hollin, green hollin;
A shade of green leaves is my home,
Birk and green hollin.
