Lawks a lawdy

Posted by Janet Mck on August 23, 2004

trying to fid out where this came from originally - I suspect "lawdy" is a derivation of "lord", but as "lawks a mussy" is derived from "lord have mercy", that seems to indicate "lawks a lawdy" is another way of saying "lord lord" which doesn't quite ring true.
Any information gratefully received!
