Thread Name: A note to Three Score and Ten
Subject: RE: A note to Three Score and Ten
Brian Dawson sang this in a singaround at Sidmouth, and (because he is so well versed in the traditions of Lincolnshire) I listened very carefully to his chorus - he sang "long defied", which I thought made sense. But when I talked to him afterwards he said that the William Delf version was "longed to fight", but he thought "long defied" made more sense!
