Subject: RE: Origins: Sussex Drinking Song (Hilaire Belloc)
graham: I'm surprised Bob "couldn't track down a tune for 'Golier'" since, as noted in my post above (dated 21 Feb 10) of other songs in The Four Men, a score is provided in the book, on page 171 (for another song using the same tune). I also quoted the full lyrics Belloc gave for "Golier"--all of three lines.
