Thread Name: A note to Three Score and Ten
Subject: RE: A note to Three Score and Ten
I like this song a bunch. It too is one of the early songs in my rep and I sing still. Gordon Bok does a great version of it. His low voice makes it sound like a lament.
I learned it as "From Yarmouth Town to Scarborough..." I always viewed this song as a news report. A rhyming headline and following newspaper report telling a story of national interest from the local point of view.
It needn't be any more than that.
