Thread Name: Lyr Add: British Man of War
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: British Man of War
The song was collected quite a few times (my copy of the Roud index has 42 entries for it) Sharp, Gardiner, Moeran, Grainger, Williams all collected versions in the UK and Fowke, Peacock and Puckett collected versions in Canada and Brown's NC Folklore has a version. For example, Karpeles' Cecil Sharp's Collection of English Folk Songs prints 3 tunes and there is a version in The Wanton Seed from Gardiner.
