Thread Name: Ballad Tom Pierce
Subject: RE: Balled Tom Pierce
A question has arosen elsewhere as to the words to a local Widdicombe version. It was suggested that the local version includes some bawdy material. It seems likely enough, considering that drink may be taken where the song might be sung.

Something to do with an encounter by Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, etc with someone named Gwendolyn.

Any knowledge of this?
