JWB Lyr Add: A Sunderland Song (7) RE: Lyr Add: A Sunderland Song 10 Sep 04

Thank you, Malcolm. When I searched the DT and the Forum all I got was this thread -- nothing came up in the DT at all. Did I not ask politely enough?

The song you link to is indeed an amalgamation. Captain Bover, according to a CD by Salt of the Earth, was written by Barry Temple. The Weary Cutters appears to be traditional.

Well, I'm going to perform the latter tonight at a concert of songs from the era of Nelson's Navy. It's a fine song, with a beautiful melody (no knowing if the melody is traditional, though).

I appreciate the help.
