Thread Name: Origins: Admiral Benbow
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Admiral Benbow (from June Tabor)
There is a version in Frank Kidson and Martin Shaw's Songs of Britain (1913), with tune. The text on cursory examination seems very close to June Tabor's version. I don't know whether the tune is the same as Tabor, Killen or the Coppers use, not having heard any of them. A scan of the book is available at Google Books (pp. 60-61, PDF pp. 79-80).
