G'day all,

The tune is in a minor key and no particularly like Rosin the Beau but, since it has a simple four-square structure, it could go to many ballad tunes. If no one else comes up with the tune, I might stir myself to turn out a MIDI-Text version.

It is also worth noting that this song has, as an illegitimate offspring, the well-known music hall play song Botany Bay (the "Toorali-oorali-addity" chorus one) which was sung by Florian Pascal in Little Jack Shepherd, a play produced by Henry Mayhew (better known for his anthrpological work in London Labour and the London Poor , 3 volumes, 1851 - 1862) in 1880.
