Thread Name: Lyr Add: Beacon Park (Cyril Tawney)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Beacon Park (Cyril Tawney)
The suspect word in v. 5 of 'Beacon Park' (where Cyril had his first digs after leaving the Royal Navy) is "wasted". This song and 'West Yorkshire Lullaby' were well-accepted both in and outside of their 'home' regions. They are on the cassette "Man of Honour" NGL 102, of which I have a very small number for sale, as does the online EFDSS Folk Shop.
