Thread Name: Folklore: Van Diemen's Land
Subject: RE: Folklore: Van Dieman's Land
The words in the digitrad for Van Diemen's Land do not appear wholly to accord with the Ewan MacColl recording nor the Young Tradition one.
I am told that the intrusive "Young Men Beware!" chorus was written and inserted by Steeleye Span. Can anyone comment on this while I eat - maybe back later with the other words...
