GUEST,Gerry Origins: The Nightingale (7) RE: Origins: The Nightingale 26 May 20

There's a version of this song on the Alan Scott & Keith McKenry CD, Travelling Through the Storm. The liner notes:

This fine song of love lost at sea was collected by Alan in 1965, from Mrs Susan Colley of Bathurst. It is the only time the song has been collected in Australia. Mrs Colley's version had only four verses and Alan composed a fifth when he started singing the song himself. A longer British text is given in A. L. Lloyd's book, The Singing Englishman.
