Subject: Same Tune?

I had a tune going through my head driving me crazy until I realized it was Utah Phillip's Kid's Liberation Song. But isn't that the same tune as The Ship's Cook/The black Cook?

THE BLACK COOK

If you'll listen awhile, I will sing you a ditty
Concerning a doctor who lived in Carrtown,
By seamen so bold he was fairly outwitted
And fifty gold guineas was forced to pay down
These jolly jack tars and their comrades, well grogged,
Their money all spent and their credit far gone;
From Fairport's bright town to the Keys they had wandered
And bound to obtain some money for fun.

KID'S LIBERATION SONG
(Bruce Phillips)

Look what I found out here in the back yard
It's fuzzy and looks like it's going somewhere
When I open my hand up to ask you my question
You thump me and holler, "Don't bring that in here!"

Well I had a question I wanted to ask you
And I had some thoughts that I wanted to share
But you make me feel like I don't know nothing
And you make me wonder if you even care

Black Cook and Kid's Liberation Song are to the tune Larry O'Gaff. Also used for Squid Jigging Ground.

Utah used that tune a lot as sort of a placeholder, but Kid's Lib is the only one I know of that he was fully satisfied it worked with.

I think it was the Hank Snow influence.

There's a rake of Irish songs to this tune - immediately to mind come: The bonnie wee lassie who never said no (as sung by John Maguire and John Campbell) and Stick to the cratur.
