The Doctor Lyr Req: Hopping Down in Kent (34) RE: Hopping Down In Kent 17 Feb 09

Martyn Wyndham-Read uses this song in his Christmas show 'Maypoles to Mistletoe'. This is available on CD on the Country Branch label, CBCD 091. It was also recorded earlier by Leader and that has been CD'd by Dave Bulmer, but that one doesn't have the Hopping song on anyway. It's been produced in book form for anyone who wants to perform it, so complete with words and music, published by EPS, ISBN 978-1-905637-35-5. I got my copy from Amazon but if they're no longer doing it I can put you in touch with the authors. Martyn uses Louie Fuller's version, with, incidentally, verse 3 as 'Every Sunday morning' and verse 4 'Now Monday is our washday'.
