Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Still, if the version collected from OJ Abbott is the same one Bert was using, it looks as if four verses have been bulked out to nine. Like other singers on this thread, I often smush different versions of a song together and occasionally interpolate a line or two of my own, but I'm not comfortable with a 50:50 ratio of old to new.
