Thread Name: Lyr Req: F. J. Child ballads
Subject: RE: F. Child Lyrics
The two basic books are Childs' The English and Scottish Popular Ballads, and (for tunes) Bronson's The Singing Tradition of the Child Ballads (I may have that name wrong). Both are out of print, but available at libraries. The Digital Tradition has most of Childs' 305 ballads, some in several versions.
