I’m amused by Jon’s Spiers and Boden derived confession here, “From the Copper family come this strange and lyrically somewhat questionable number, but one hell of a tune. John and I keep trying to do it as a two-parter but we can never remember what order the verses go in (not an issue if you’re singing solo fortunately.)” The first port of call is therefore the Coppers’ site here for the song as they have it. Mainly Norfolk also cover Steeleye’s version. After yesterday, Mudcat thankfully avoids controversy, although there is a quest for the sense of a couple of the lines and a little Micky taking in that regard.
