Read all the previous discussions, and the DT files (links above) then ask again. You'll understand why when you've done the reading.

Dave Turner wrote a good one called 'ban the bow'

don't know if anybody's got the words.

He had an album on Sweet Folk and Country - Joe Stead would know. Dave came from Nottngham - so its almost ethnic.

Lutz,
My favorite is Lonesome Robin. Helen Shneyer has a wonderful recording of it and it's a favorite at song circles in the States. But it not traditional.
Welcome!

probably is sime music in the soundtrack to the movie
which was filmed in Bidwell Park in Chico, Calif.
(one of the largest city parks in the US) with
Olivia de haviland and oh oh i forgot his name...
i think it was made in the forties.

Lonesome Robin, written by Bob Coltman is my favorite.

There was an at times contentious Folklore thread that delved into Robin Hood lore.

The late Rick Fielding gave us a fine "The Birth of Robin Hood" on his Folk-Legacy CD titled "Lifeline." (Folk-Legacy CD-123) Check the Folk-Legacy web site, which someone more clever than I can give you a "blue clicky thing" to reach (or, of course, you can "google" it).

I'm glad you mentioned that, Sandy. I was going to say the same thing.

I hear tell that our Art Thieme does a very nice version of 'The Death of Robin Hood'.

Thanks, Sins, that sounds interesting. There is no need to be a traditional. Just want to know a good song which can be covered or new arranged in a recording project.

Thank you, too.

Yes, also a good idea to make a research in the soundtracks of the old movies.

Thanks also to you, Sandy, too!

I have found by myself endless ballad lyrics regarding RH, but what I really need is the melody, it doesn´t matter if in sheet music or in a recording. But recordings are really helpful.

And thanks to you, Barry, too.

I will take care to buy this recording somewhere. At the moment I just collect the various song material, later I will choose out which could be the best one to record for a special project in 2006/2007.
