Marilee [MMario] (Lyrics at the Mudcat Songbook)   thread
Marry? Oh No, Not I (a transcription from a recording by Margaret Christl, and names no traditional source. I think it a fairly safe bet that this was also taken from Peacock, who published a set -from Everett Bennett again- which is textually nearly identical, though Christl has made some minor alterations; including the title, which was Oh No, Not I. Compare, first Bennett's first verse, then Christl's: A Newfoundland sailor was walking the Strand, He met a pretty fair maid, and took her by the hand, Saying, "Will you come to Newfoundland along with me?" he cried. And the answer that she made to him was "Oh no, not I." A Newfoundland sailor was walking by the strand He spied a pretty fair young maid, and took her by the hand "Oh, will you go to Newfoundland, along with me?" he cried But the answer that she gave him was, "It's, oh no, not I." That's The Strand in London, rather than the seaside! Midi made from Peacock's notation. The song has turned up quite a bit in England and Canada, and occasionally in the USA; it appeared on 19th century broadsides both as No, my love, not I and The Newfoundland Sailor. Roud Index number 1403.) DT

Midi made from notation in Peter Kennedy's Folksongs of Britain and Ireland, 1975, where it was called The False Young Man. Kennedy and Sean O'Boyle recorded the song from Sarah Makem in 1953 Roud Index no. 175, Laws P20.

Obviously, we don't know whether or not Harry Sutherland used that tune or one like it.) DT thread
