Thread Name: Man in the Moon - old song?
Subject: RE: Man in the Moon - old song?
I can add some information on the Man In The Moon song that LanceTheLibrarian referenced above (17th Oct 13), collected by Alfred Williams (Roud 21397), the words that The Full English paired with Scan Tester's tune.
It was published in Everybody's song book, or, The saloon visitor's companion : being a choice selection of new & favourite songs, with imprint: Birmingham : Printed by W. Pratt; London : Published by J.T. Wood, [18—-]. (Maybe Steve can give us a better idea of the publishing date - addresses given as: Printed by W. Pratt, 82, Digbeth, Birmingham, and Published by J. T. Wood, 278, Strand, London. in case that helps).
I don't know if you want to start a new thread for this song Joe?
