GUEST,Doug Olsen John Barleycorn 'Two Brothers' version (5) RE: John Barleycorn 'Two Brothers' version 14 Jun 10

Here's the tune in abc. I should note that following each verse is a Fol a rol chorus, which I didn't include above. So the entire first verse is:

There were two brothers stood on a hill
As might stand you and I
And between them there arose a dipute
John Barleycorn should die
Fol a rol a riddy-eye | Fol a rol a riddy how die.

Sound familiar to anyone?
