Thread Name: Lyr Req: Dockyard Gate (from Peter Bellamy)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Peter Bellamy's Dockyard Gate
I bow to those who know the Norfolk dialect and withdraw my inquiry.
I will puzzle further over how I as a non-Norfolk resident should sing this song. What dialect I do use might be liberally interpretated as folk music nautical slang; however, I'm not even sure if there is uniform agreement about what constitutes this archane dialect.
