Thread Name: Lyr Add: Tarpaulin Jacket
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Wrap me up in my tarpaulin jacket????
Our band currently do a rocked up version of 'Rakish Young Fellow' (Roud 829. Sharp 228)
We've worked on it starting out from the unaccompianied version on Walter Pardon's 'A World Without Horses'

One verse runs...
I'll never go sobbing and sighing – but just one last favour I crave
Wrap me up in my tarpaulin jacket – and fiddle and dance round my grave

...good to see so many variations of more or less the same verses in this thread. Very interesting read - ta! Duncan
