Thread Name: Origins: Admiral Benbow
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Admiral Benbow lyrics
Here at Disney Sea in Tokyo, one of the piped-in tunes on the "Cape Cod Waterfront" is the Swan Arcade/June Tabor version of "Admiral Benbow".
It is likely that Tabor learned the song from Dave and Heather Brady of Swan Arcade as they live fairly close to each other in Northern England. Swan Arcade recorded the song in the last 60's or early 70's I believe.
