Subject: SNARLEYOW, Kipling poem

Anyone know the tune this piece is usually sung to? I don't know if it was by Peter Bellamy; Martin Winsor used to do it, among others. I can only remember the chorus. ABC or any other format is fine (even music!)

I don'y know the tune it's usually sung to, but the tune that you and I recall Martin Winsor singing was, I believe written by Martin. I still sing it.

Any chance of the dots, Barrie?

I picked up one of Martin & Redd's (& friends) lp recently at a car boot sale, along with one of dear old Alex Campbell live at a festicval (Hell yes!), along with a book on the development of the folk movement by one Fred Woods. All excellent stuff, unfortunately no Snarleyow. Did you know that snarleyow was one of the words on Call My Bluff years back? The only one I ever knew.

Peter Bellamy sang Snarleyow, to the tune of Down in the Coalmine, in 1980 in a four hour Kipling Radio Documentary on ABC Radio. It is available on the Reddit channel r/PeterBellamy in the thread Out of Print and Bootled Recordings, in the second hour at about 10 minutes in.

I have those programmes so I cut out that track together with Peter's introduction - which follows Gunga Din.

Snarleyow, sung by Peter Bellamy (Link will expire.)

The tune The Collier Lad is the same as Down in the Coalmine, I think.

The Bellamy subreddit is here:
