Excuse my confusion, a friend was looking for this one and I kind of half remember it, but I’ve known it as a song too, and I don’t mean the children’s one but something that was either a protest song or about murdering ones lover. I did ask you to excuse any confusions on my part. I’m hoping that by submitting it others will come along and add some clarity and history. I haven’t yet found our collection of Morris tunes, but I suspect there will be a version of this in at least on of our books on that subject. I have checked through a number of others, but so far no luck.
Here’s a YouTube of some folks having fun with this one, and putting it through its paces and transformations:
I’ll give this more attention later and add at least another transcription based on their playing… Any help, added information and transcriptions would be greatly appreciated.
