Subject: Lyr Add: Morris men (from BBC Singing Together)

Welsh song

Come and see the Morris men,
Dancing, dancing down the glen,
May be eight or nine or ten;
Oh, hear the fiddler playing;
They're going to the Maying.

Shall we follow everywhere,
Till we reach the village fair,
Let us run, we'll soon be there;
Oh, hear the fiddler playing;
We're going to the Maying.

Then we must before we go,
Take a branch from off the sloe,
Fairest blossom, white as snow;
Oh, hear the fiddler playing,
We're off to join the Maying.

X: 1
T: Morris men
M: 6/8
L: 1/8

K: Bb
V: 1
w: Come and see the Mor-ris men, Danc-ing, danc-ing down the glen, May be eight or nine or ten; Oh, hear the fid-dler play-ing; They're go-ing to the May-ing.

The music also shows an accompaniment for sleigh bells (rhythm only) the rhythm repeats every two bars: |:Crotchet quaver crotchet quaver| Crotchet quaver dotted-crotchet :|
Also included are guitar chords which I'll notate on a bar by bar basis (what do I know of such esoterica?):
| Gm | Gm | Gm | Dm | Eb | Bb | Gm | Dm | Eb F | Gm | Dm | Gm |

Thanks, I had forgotten that I asked you to post this.
It is the first time I have been back on Mudcat since the request, so your timing is perfect.
