Hi,

TY for posting the texts. My typing is the worst :) Stanzas 4-6 of The Young British Waterman are from Constant Lady, a c. 1686 broadside. Great version!

I know Peta Webb, at least I've corresponded with her when she was at the Cecil Sharp House. Hilarious stanza, not sure of its pedigree.

I'll be sure to add The Young British Waterman to my collection tonight.

TY

Richie
