Subject: Lyr. re My Boy Jack
Does anyone know the words to a short song I remember hearing on a Peter Bellamy CD called Bellamy, Mr.Kipling and the tradition I think.
Some of the songs are Kipling's poems and some are Bellamys as well as a few others thyrown in. I'm not sure who wrote this one.

I know a few of the words, they go something like this:
Have you heard any news of my boy jack?
Not this time-
Do you know when he'll be coming back?
Not with the wind blowing and this time.

It's a lovely little song in my opinion a bit sad though.
Hope someone can help- that would be great!
