If anyone knows this Peter Faulkner coracle maker it would be useful to have the wagon verse of this obscure song. The shepherd verse is quite revealing in 2 ways.
1) It raises the likelihood of a near London setting.
2) The sentiments expressed are in line with the type of stuff put out by the late 18thc theatres and the pleasure gardens.
