Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bushes and Briars
Subject: Tune Add: BUSHES AND BRIARS
I was looking at this song for another reason unconnected with this thread, and I notice that the tune given in the DT, although referring to Mr. Pottipher, does not seem to be his tune. Neither do the words there agree with the broadside RVW used, which seems to be the one linked to by Malcolm above. I give here Mr. Pottipher's tune (from the Roy Palmer book referred to above) and for comparison, the DT tune as given and transposed for comparison with Mr. Pottipher's.
