Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Barleycorn (Songwainers)
Subject: RE: Barleycorn/Songwainers
I use the same tune for "John Barleycorn's a Hero Bold" with the "Come put your wine in glasses, put your cider in an old tin can, put John Barleycorn in a nut-brown bowl and he'll prove the strongest man" refrain.

Bit of a bastardisation, but I like it.
