Thread Name: Lyr Req: Oakham Poachers
Subject: 'Oakham Poachers' anyone?
Anyone have the lyrics for 'Oakham Poachers'(?). I heard John Kirkpatrick doing the song and thought it was excellent. On the subject of poaching tunes; does anyone know whether these tunes of poor poachers who always got caught and shipped off to Botany Bay/ sentenced to death were sort of anti-poaching propaganda? I'd like to here some thoughts on this. Cheers, S.D.
