Perhaps the best known of English hunting songs, "Fine Hunting Day" was written for the Warwickshire Hunt.

There were a number of songs collected in Ilmington, as well as the Morris dance tradition. So I would Google that.

Strawhead produced a CD called a Walled Town & Ragged Staff celebrating the 450th anniversary of Warwick - There are twenty tracks of songs connected to Warwick(shire).

I have a copy of Roy Palmer's book "Songs Of The Midlands" for sale on eBay at the moment. It contains a fair number of songs collected in Warwickshire.

Or a song sung by Scouts in Warwickshire

The Warwickshire Song
(Tune Villikins & his Dinah)

A young earl of Warwick, one Atholl by name,
Did need him a sign for to bring him some fame,
His name meant a bear so a bear he did choose,
And that's how the bear first came into the news.

Chorus
Rye toodle rye toodle rye toodle rye aye
We'll show you our badge if you come down our way
It's only a bear standing up by a tree,
But it's story was told in 900ad

Morvidus the earl who came after that chap,
Uprooted an oak and with lions did scrap,
He slew them and cut it to pieces of chaf,
And that's how the bear got his rugged old staff,

Chorus




The Bear & Rugged Staff (The Arms of Warwickshire) Also the name of numerous pubs in the UK


CHEERS

If you're happy to consider contemporary songs as well as trad ones, there's Gilly Kemp's "All in a Warwickshire Road" (try a PM to Wuzzle)!
