Place Collected: Staverton
Date collected: 1978 (5 May)
Collector: Davies, Gwilym

Nothing can be traced as to the origins of this song but judging by the style and the inappropriate vocabulary, it would seem to be from the minstrel tradition. Danny commented to Gwilym Davies that the song is well received in Wales!
