Thread Name: Lyr Add: Tarpaulin Jacket
Subject: RE: Wrap me up in my tarpaulin jacket????
In my impressionable youth I believe that I heard the late Declan Affley sing this at a National Folk Festival in Melbourne in 1972/3? There was an LP produced of the main concert, but I don't have a copy. While I have cartainly heard the Tarpaulin version, it is possible that Declan sang Fiddlers Green that night. As I recall the two tunes are very similar - if not clones. Bob Bolton may have a copy of the LP.
