Thread Name: ADD/Origins: The Rout of the Blues
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Rout of the Blues
It isn't in any of the English Dance and Song copies I have, but a Scarborough Sands version is in Frank Purslow's EFDSS book 'The Foggy Dew' p81 published in 1974.
Other than that the only other well-known source is Ingledew. They will have a copy of Ingledew in Cecil Sharp House. The Bebbington broadside copy is in York Minster Library and the only other SS version I know of was printed by Williamson of Newcastle but I haven't got a copy. I only know this because he listed it in his c1860 catalogue.
