Subject: RE: Lyr Req/Origins: My Jolly Roving Tar
By the way the OP's song is Roud 913, Laws O27, and its Master Title is indeed 'The Jolly Roving Tar', and oral versions exist in the UK and Canada, but Len's version would make a welcome addition as I have no other versions from Ireland. Jim's early version is set in London but some of the early broadsides are set in Liverpool.
