"There's "Willikins and his Dinah"
Streets of Laredo
Lillibulero
Wearing of the green
Little old Mud Cabin on the Hill"
Seeger and MacColl did an evening of tune variants at the Singers Club years ago, and Peggy (half-joking) said there were about 5.
Had great fun when Peggy was preparing Ewan's songbook, of helping out by spotting which tunes he had adapted for his own songs.
Still can't get over Flower of Scotland's operatic origins (Nabucco?)
