Thread Name: Lyr Req: Farewell Dearest Nancy (Mick Hanly)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Mick Hanly's Farewell Dearest Nancy
Thanks Susan. There was one phrase that I distinctly remember from Mick Hanly's version, and it was "To the burning West Indies my course for to steer".

That was the line I was looking for...
I have heard many versions of this over the years; Martin Carthy and others, but I always remembered the guitar accompaniment of Mick Hanly, and I'm trying to learn it 'backwards', so to speak: find the words that fit the accompaniment...

Thanks again.
