Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Barleycorn (Songwainers)
Subject: RE: Barleycorn/Songwainers

Thanks - further investigation suggests that you're coreect. The tune "Wir Pflügen (Dresden)" was apparently written by Johann Abraham Peter Schulz. Mind you that doesn't preclude it from being a 'traditional' tune that Schulz borrowed (Vaughan Williams style) Maybe I just want it to be that way...


Apologies if I've hijacked your thread. I've had a good look round but can't find the lyrics you want. If you have no luck here I'd suggest emailing Gwilym Davies who seems to be something of an authority on Gloucestershire Songs
