Thread Name: Robin Hood ballads
Subject: RE: Robin Hood ballads
It was so long ago but the lyrics posted by Trevor (a valiant contribution of typing by the way)don't set my memory jogging along.
The version I vaguely recall had "the thievin' robbin' bastard that he was" as part of the chorus.
I attended The Duke of York Folk Club in Eccles Manchester at the time (early 70's) and was only young, underage in fact for drinking but I was the protege of Ted Edwards and was overlooked by the management.
This has got me thinking now .........................
