Thread Name: Origins: Sussex Drinking Song (Hilaire Belloc)
Subject: Tune Add: [SUSSEX] DRINKING SONG (Hillaire Belloc)
In The Four Men Belloc also provides a tune for the [Sussex] "Drinking Song":

T:Drinking Song
C:Hilaire Belloc

In Verses Belloc also wrote a "Drinking Song" and a "Drinking Dirge". I imagine he included even more in other works.
