Day 2, and here's another traditional number for you: Little Musgrave.
My version started life as a copy of Nic Jones's, but then changed. The tune is basically my own (although it owes something to Shady Grove as sung by Jean Ritchie), while the words include bits from a couple of other variants. Another contrast with Nic Jones's version is that, while this one has the same number of verses (27), it comes in at nearly two minutes shorter - there's value for you.
Share and enjoy!
