Thread Name: does anyone know a wife-selling song?
Subject: RE: does anyone know a wife-selling song?
Someone mentioned below a song from Jon and Michael Raven:
This is to give notice that bandy-legged Lett
Will sell his wife Sally for what he can get,
At twelve in the morning the sale'll begin,
So all you gay fellows, be there with your tin.
Etc... It's on a CD (copied from the original LP) available here http://www.michaelraven.co.uk/Home/tabid/38/Default.aspx; it's a collection of traditional folk songs of the Black Country and the West Midlands.
