Joe_F Chords Req: A Smuggler's Song (Rudyard Kipling) (20) RE: Chords Req: A Smuggler's Song (Rudyard Kipling) 04 May 18

I suppose that there must be a traditional tune in Britain, in that Flanders & Swann, in their song "Bedstead Men" in _At the Drop of Another Hat_, break into another tune for the line "So watch the wall, my darlings, while the bedstead men go by", in clear allusion (recognized by the audience) to "A Smuggler's Song".

Somebody ought to collect *all* the tunes to which Kipling was sung in the music-hall era.
