Thread Name: Lyr ADD: The Black Fox (Graham Pratt)
Subject: RE: The Black Fox
I lost a lot of posts yesterday - my ISP kept dropping the connection and they vanished into the ether.

I contacted Graham some time ago - he kindly gave me permission to post the words on my Foolestroupe Yahoo list.

I finally tracked him down as the song had become popular with the SCA in Australia and USA. I had seen it accredited as "trad", "anonymous" and even attributed to someone with an SCA (assumed) name as the Author. I had heard the song at an SCA event, and in trying to remember it, had created two versions a shorter condensed version, and an even longer one. Graham seemed not in the least perturbed at my "creative efforts" .. :-)
