Thread Name: Lyr Req: Nancy from Yarmouth / Nancy from London
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Nancy from Yarmouth
Hi Everyone,
I've been lookining for the lyrics to "Pretty Nancy" as well, but the version I've been trying to find is by John Tams (worship & praise!!) off of his "The Reckoning" CD.
Lots of similarities and differences to the versions already quoted.
Starts off as "Pretty Nancy of London,from that fair England's street,She was courted by William ............" and the tune is the Yarmouth one.
Haven't been able to find it on the omniscient internet, so I'll just have (labouriously) transcribe it from the CD and I'll probably invoke the Folk Process and include some of the verses from here.
Good to have all the background & different versions.
As & when I get it done, I'll post it.
Cheers for now
