Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Bold Robber
The version posted by Malcolm has seen some redaction if the version given in JFSS8 (1906) is anything to go by. I've always been somewhat suspicious of this unique one (as is my wont). It sounds too good to be true, great words and super tune, a step above the usual broadside doggerel it partly imitates. If I get time I'll post the song as collected. It's only the odd word here and there and the version Malcolm posted is a definite improvement.
