Thread Name: Lyr Req: May Song (D Webber) and other May songs
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: first of may
Conan, I'm merely stating what happened - I make no comment about whether she was serious or not. The lady's reaction was reported by the person that told her Dave had written it. I do know that songs about Padstow Mayday have been written locally, and I do know that Dave's song is regularly sung at the Ring o' Bells in St. Issey, and not just by 'English' people, but by local Cornish people. How well do you know that pub and its singers, and for how long have you known it?
