Nellie o’ Bob's o’t’ Crowtrees

Who is it at lives i' that cot on the lea,
    Joy o' my heart an' leet o' my ee?
    Who is that lass at's so dear unto me?
       Nelly o' Bob's o' t' Crowtrees.

    Who is it goes trippin' ower dew-spangled grass,
    Singin' so sweetly? Shoo smiles as I pass,
    Bonniest, rosy-cheek'd, gay-hearted lass!
       Nelly o' Bob's o' t' Crowtrees.

    Who is it I see i' my dreams of a neet ?
    Who lovingly whispers words tender an' sweet,
    Till I wakken to find shoo's nowheer i' t' seet?
       Nelly o' Bob's o' t' Crowtrees.

    Who is it at leads me so lively a donce,
    Yet to tawk serious ne'er gies me a chonce,
    An' niver replied when I begged on her once?
       Nelly o' Bob's o' t' Crowtrees.

    Who is it at ivery chap's hankerin' to get,
    Yet tosses her heead an' flies off in a pet,
    As mich as to say, "You've not getten me yet"?
       Nelly o' Bob's o' t' Crowtrees.

    Who is it could mak life a long summer's day,
    Whose smile would drive sorrow an' trouble away,
    An' mak t' hardest wark, if for her, seem like play?
       Nelly o' Bob's o' t' Crowtrees.

    Who is it I'll have if I've iver a wife,
    An' love her, her only, to th' end o' my life,
    An' nurse her i' sickness, an' guard her from strife?
       Nelly o' Bob's o' t' Crowtrees.

    Who is it at's promised, to-neet if it's fine,
    To meet me at t' corner o' t' mistal(1) at nine?
    Why, it's her at I've langed for so long to mak mine-
       Nelly o' Bob's o' t' Crowtrees.

Regarding tunes, the current Folk Music Journal is devoted to tunes, and many of the papers were first given at the first weekend tunes conference organised by EFDSS/VWML in 2017. There was a further conference in Sheffield in 2019, and another conference on tunes organised by EFDSS/VWML is planned for this Autumn. Details on the VWML website.

That's useful for others but if I spread my knowledge base too far, at my age, I fear it will weaken it. I'm already forgetting a lot of what I had in my head. I'll stick to what I know, and have the info on at my fingertips, thankyou. What with the boats and organising folk events and the books and articles my family already think I do too much. They're probably right.

There is an excellent online course (MOOC) called 'The Fundamentals of Music Theory' which people might like to try.

Pseu, I'm the thickest-skinned person on the planet!

There is a very strong movement starting up led by Sheffield University and Julia Bishop with strong TSF connections which is concentrating on the tunes of folksongs. I've contributed a paper to their first volume. Although I don't read music I can still research the history of tunes.
My paper is on the evolution and history of the ubiquitous tune 'Derry Down'.

If you contact Joe I'm sure he'd willingly set up a permathread on tune studies and history. I have long said at our meetings that this aspect of our research is sadly underresearched mainly because most of us are firmly text-based.

Steve Gardam commented on another thread that he tended to skip the bits in Hillery's PhD which were musically technical. I fully understand how musical analysis can get too much to take in. I recently gave up on a chapter in a book for this very reason. But I have the advantage of some degree of musical literacy. Even so I and had to think twice about a couple of bits of Hillery's technical vocabulary. But for me one of the strengths and points of interest of the piece was the comparisons of singing styles based on close analysis of use of voice and of ornamentation, rhythm, pitch (or slight lack of in some cases) etc. Too often folk songs are treated in writing as if they were nothing but lyrics. I know that different lyrics got sung to various tunes and so on, and also that musical notation and vocabulary doesn't fully describe what we hear, and are designed for 'art music' anyway, but as a person more of a musician than singer (and not much of either) I find it frustrating that the music bit tends to get ignored, or reduced to analysis of tune families. Music has its own semiotic significance, to put it one way. If they weren't songs people would recite them not sing them. I hope Steve doesn't mind me continuing that discussion here, where it seems more appropriate. And that he understands that I mean no disrespect by doing so.

Thank you, Steve. The words of the conversation simply fell into place!

And this amended last verse shows the lad outwitting the farmer;

So the lad he goes back to t’farmer again.
Will he put in a good word? t’farmer says then.
No, says t’lad, He won't give one for me,
And without one I cannot come working for thee.

Excellent stuff, Henry.
Completely in the style of an early-nineteenth century broadside writer who would have used as much of the material in the story or newspaper article as he could to make his ballad.

Anapestic tetrameter can be fit to all manner of excellent tunes. The obvious one is Villikins but you could use Derry Down.

Love it! excellent economy and well crafted.

From VERNACULAR SONG FROM A NORTH YORKSHIRE HILL FARM: CULTURE, CONTEXTS AND COMPARISONS
Submitted to the University of Newcastle for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy 2005
DAVID HILLERY International Centre for Music Studies

"The ritual of the hirings went on in many areas until the First World War and lingered on in some areas including the Lake District and Ireland until the Second. The arrangement was a very speculative and hazardous enterprise for both parties. Jack Beeforth encapsulated the problem of the need for mutual trust in the transaction thus:

"A lad goes to t'hirings and meets a farmer who says, 'Ista for hiring?' 'Aye', says t'lad. 'What can you deea?' says t'farmer. 'Oh, ommost onnything on a farm', says t'lad. 'Well thoo looks a likely lad', says t'farmer. 'Wheer were you last?"Wi' him over theer', says t'lad. 'Can you get yourself a character?' says t'farmer 'and then I'll hire you'. So the lad goes over to t'feller he were wi', and asks him for a character. 'Nay, lad, you deeant want to go wi' him. He'll hunger yer and work yer and you'll have a right bad time'. So the lad goes back to t'farmer. 'Well, have you got a character?' says he. 'Why', says t'lad, 'I haven't got one for me, but he's just given me a right one for thee'."

I've taken this extract and put it into verse;

A mean farmer goes to the Martinmas Fair
To see the farm workers who all gathered there.
Lad, ista for hiring? Hasta got a strong arm?
I can deea ommost onnything, says t’lad, On a farm.

Well thoo looks a good lad. Wheer were you last year?
I worked wi’ t’feller standing just over theer.
Now if he will put in a good word for thee,
Then I’ll hire thee this year and tha’ll come back with me.

The lad goes over to him to ask for a good word.
But his old master says, Nay, lad, haven’t yer heard?
Yer deean’t want to go wi’ him to make yer new home.
He’ll hunger yer and work yer reet down to the bone.

So the lad he goes back to t’farmer again.
Did he put in a good word? t'farmer says then.
Why, says t’lad, I haven’t got one for me,
But he’s told me to never go working for thee.

It's coming back to me now. Before Dave's thesis came online not long after he completed it I tried to obtain a copy from Newcastle. The cost was beyond my pocket but they sent me a microfilm version of it which not having a microfilm reader at the time I took to my local library where I was allowed free to look at the thesis, but the cost of printing off a full copy was again prohibitive. I only had the microfilm for a limited amount of time so eventually I had to send it back without copying it unfortunately. Now I have printed it off and it is phenomenal. I'll be back in a few weeks when I've read it and thoroughly digested it. Many thanks for the links, Ross.

I googled and found it online, it was the University of Newcastle.
The title is something like 'Vernacular Song From a Yorkshire Hill Farm'. It compares four singers, one from the first revival and three from the second. I intend to post more about it in the Pardon thread if this does not get closed before I get a chance to do so. It looks closely at singing styles over four categories of song. It seems Hillery is musically literate as he discusses musical aspects in some detail as well as social contexts where these are known.

If you google you should locate it quite easily with this information.
If not come back and I'll do it and give the link. I downloaded it.

I believe that this is the same person whose work comparing Walter Pardon with three other singers I have been praising repeatedly on the thread about Walter Pardon research. He had many interesting points, including comparisons between first and second wave song collectors, and what he saw as increased problems with 'mediation' in the more embedded approaches of second wave collectors. I hope this does not misrepresent his point of view. He had many other interesting points to make. This is the best thing I have read on Pardon, and |I think I have read more or less everything people on here can point me to.

He did a degree in his retirement and his dissertation involved his collecting experiences, in North Yorkshire, but I don't think he would want to be referred to as an academic. He also included a comparison between the repertoires of one of the Norfolk singers and one of the North Yorkshire singers. It might have been Walter Pardon and Arthur Wood. I haven't heard from him for at least 5 years.

Like Jim Carroll, I was greatly influenced by the music I heard at Harry Boardman's folk club - by 1969-70, it had moved to Failsworth, but then moved back into Manchester city centre. Harry, Dave, Terry and the embryonic Canny Fettle. Last I heard, Dave was definitely in Durham, but not sure about the university lectureship ... in an case, he'd be retired by now. You can find his doctoral thesis on line.
