Ged Fox Songs from English Civil War (26) RE: Songs from English Civil War 14 Oct 18

"Sir John Suckling's Campaign," possibly written by Sir John as a joke against himself, relates to the Bishops' War, a prelude to the Civil War proper. It was probably sung to the well-known "Francis Drake" tune.

"When the King enjoys his own again" may be the best known, written during the war, to an older Welsh tune.

The Diggers' Song, by Winstanley, just after the war in the Commonwealth period.
