I thought it would be fun to learn Jolly Jarge. Bill Dore was recorded singing it to a piano accompaniment, and it was put onto the album When Sheepshearing's Done. I have tried to pick out the words from his singing, but am having difficulty with some of it, because of his accent and dialect, which though wonderful, are a bit of a barrier to someone from Kent.

I have been unable to find out anything about Bill online, and nobody else has posted lyrics.

George Bastow 1871-1914 had JJ in his repertoire, I think I have seen the sheet music from about 1900 somewhere.

I remember Bill Dore telling me that this was the only song that he sang which he had never seen in print. Though I am quite sure that Steve is right when he says that he has seen a printed sheet. There is, I know, an Edison cylinder recording of George Bastow singing it.
