Thread Name: Origins: Meaning of John Barleycorn
Subject: RE: Meaning of John Barleycorn
I don't know what Traffic intended, but they simply recorded an arrangement of the set published in the Penguin Book of English Folk Songs. See the many more recent discussions here (links above) for further information: as usual, somebody has dragged back from the long forgotten past the only thread that didn't contain the wee bit of "information" they wanted to add.
