Jeff, Welcome! If you're new to Mudcat, try plugging in a keyword from the song you're looking for into the DigiTrad Search box first to see if the words are in the HUGE Digital Tradition database - I pulled these with the words "forester" and "beggarman". If you don't find what you're looking for there, call in the cavalry on the discussion line!

Here is a version of the ballad "KNIGHT AND SHEPHERD'S DAUGHTER", but not necessarily the one that Steeleye Span recorded. Maddy Prior and Tim Hart tend to edit the ballads they perform.

And THE BEGGARMAN'S SONG (JOHNNY DHU) is one version of "Little Beggarman".
