Thread Name: Ballads in Robin Hood stories
Subject: Ballads in Robin Hood stories
Hello all,

I'm wondering if anyone ever put music to the ballads featured in Robin Hood stories, or if they were traditional songs added to lend authenticity, or if the songs were purely literary devices written at the same time as the tales themselves.

Any leads would be appreciated, as would dumbed-down guitar-chord versions of anything available, as I am but a strummer and not-very-good fingerpicker.
