Thread Name: Tune Req: Newgate Stone
Subject: Tune Req: Newgate Stone
I am doing some YouTube recordings of the songs Danny Spooner has sung and came across the song Newgate Stone.
The song appears in the text of the 1839, Highwayman novel 'Jack Sheppard'.
The lyrics were relatively easily found in a broadsheet of the time:
Broadsheet with Newgate Stone.
But I cannot pick the tune that Danny is singing to here:
