Thread Name: Origins: Admiral Benbow
Subject: Admiral Benbow lyrics
I'm trying to find the lyrics to a version of Admiral Benbow as done by June Tabor on the "A Cut Above" recording with Martin Simpson. The data base has The Copper Family version and the Cecil Sharpe version but Tabor's version is very different.Same tune but much more narrative. Between the naughtical terms and her smokey voice, I cant decipher it. Thanks

Versions in the Digital Tradition:
Admiral Benbow
Admiral Benbow (2)
