Maybe this is really a Lyrics req thread. Anyway... on Voice of the People 6 Belle Stewart sings "Here's a Health to all True Lovers". This is basically the same tune as is in the EFDSS's Take Six archive for "I Drew My Ship Into a Harbour" from the Francis Collinson collection.

The words for the former are more or less the story of The Grey Cock, and those of the latter are more "Awake, Awake", with hints of it moving towards "Silver Dagger". I suppose they are all night visiting songs.

Does anyone know of other variants of the words, to the same tune?

The Belle Stewart song is here, FYI - it gets cut but gives the gist.
Amazon link It's also on Spotify.
