Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Barleycorn (Songwainers)
Subject: Barleycorn/Songwainers
Quite a long time ago (71?) the Gloucestershire group the Songwainers did a version of John Barleycorn to the hymn tune, We Plough The Fields And Scatter. Would anyone happen to have the lyrics. There was a
"Come put your wine into glasses,
Put your cider into old tin cans, VPut Barleycorn in the nut-brown bowl VAnd he'll prove the strongest man"

chorus as I recall. Thanks for any info.
