FELTON LONNIN'

The Swine came jumping down Pelton Lonnin',
The swine came jumping down Pelton Loonin',
The swine came jumping down Pelton Lonnin',
There's five black swine and never and odd one.

Three i' the dyke and two i' the lonnin',
Three i' the dyke and two i' the lonnin',
Three i' the dyke and two i' the lonnin,'
That's five black swine and never an odd one.

-Cuthbert Sharp's Bishoprick Garland

The kye's come hame, but I see not my hinny,
They kye's come hame, but I see not my bairn;
I'd rather loss a' the kye than loss my hinny,
I'd rather loss a' the kye than loss my bairn.

Fair faced is my hinny, his blue eyes are bonny,
His hair in curl'd ringlets hung sweet to the sight;
O mount the old pony, seek after my hinny,
And bring to his mammy her only delight.

"Fair faced is my hinny, his blue eyes are bonny,
His hair in curl'd ringlets hung sweet to the sight;
O mount the old pony, seek after my hinny,
And bring to his mammy her only delight. "

This 2nd verse of the version posted by Conrad was written by Johnny Handle of the High Level Ranters.

The first verse, as far as I know, is trad.

Hope this helps

I'm puzzled.

I've come across the story about Johnny Handle having written the second verse as quoted by Guest Julia before. Yet what Conrad posted at the top of this thread is exactly what is in the Northumbrian Minstrelsy. I checked before posting here.

As the Northumbrian Minstrelsy was published 1882 It does potentially make Johnny Handle a fair age. I did once meet him some years ago and he didn't look that old to me :-)

Admittedly my copy of the Northumbrian Minstrelsy is a facsimile produced by Llanerch press. As far as I can see, that's just what it is so I can't see that they will have edited it at all.

Also I can't see Johnny Handle claiming authorship of something he didn't write.

Perhaps someone can explain.

This sort of thing always happens when a visitor revives a long-forgotten thread in order to post information that can already be found in every other discussion here on the subject.

People immediately start posting to it again, without noticing the date; and frequently without looking at other discussions.

'Guest Julia' is of course wrong. Though Johnny Handle did write another couple of verses for the song, they are not to be seen in this old thread; nor (thank goodness) are the further verses, added by somebody else, which transform the whole thing into a thoroughly sickly exercise in maudlin sentiment.

See thread Lyr Add: Felton Lonnen for pretty much everything you need to know; even who to blame for the ghastly final verses.
