I don't think this was posted before... I found it on youtube a few minutes ago! Here the link :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwrWUlZduLM

The Ballad is in Scots but the refrain is Norn and runs thus:
Scowan örla groan
Whar giorten han grün oarlac.

Early green's the wood
Where the hart goes yearly

Probable original :
Skogen/Skoven ørla/årla grøn
Hvar gjorten han ???? årlig

Thanks for this ballad, I was thinking of adding it to the 'Other texts' section, but as always, was running out of time..
