Santa Lyr Req: The Vicar of Hawkshead (13) RE: Lyr Req: The Vicar of Hawkshead 08 Oct 15

No, we don't recall any of the words of the verses. Some might surface if we kept prodding the subconscious, but thankfully we don't need to. We have found a fellow folk-club member (Anne Green, then the organiser) who also has the cassette, and Meg is with her now as I type - or will be soon enough. If it says more about the origins I'll post details.

I don't think it is a traditional song found elsewhere - vague memory says that Karl found it going through old texts in Lancashire libraries. It is however fairly generic, so could be anywhere.
