Rackabello (Carthy's version) has by now been improved on Garry's site. The link in this post goes to the improved transcription.

The song of the "Wild Boar", also known as "Old Bangum", etc., and designated "Sir Lionel" by Child (#18), is one of my favorites. I know that there have been other threads on this, and I have tried to look at most of them, but I would like to collect lyrics for the many versions of this song that you may know about, as well as talk about it's history and the folks who sing it. I am aware of the following excellent versions in the DT:

Sam Harmon's "Wild Boar" Harmon.

Rena Hicks' "Sir Lionel/Jovial(Jobal)Hunter Hicks.

"Wild Boar" - source not mentioned Wild Boar.

"Old Bangum" recorded by the Dildine family Old Bangum.

"Sir Eglamore", what appears to be a British Music Hall version Sir Eglamore.

There are also two excellent versions out among the various threads:

Nimrod Workman's "Quilo Quay" Quilo Quay.

Martin Carthy's "Rackabello" Rackabello.

There may be others on Mudcat that I have missed. If so, please bring them to our attention here. Another good composite version is the one by Jody Stecher Stecher.

Leslie Nelson's Contemplator's Folk Music Site has this:Contemplator. Here is a version from the Max Hunter collection Hunter. I hope that this gets the discussion going.
