GUEST,William Pint Lyr ADD/Tune Req: Nasty Nell (Janie Meneely) (19) RE: Tune Req: Nasty Nell 16 Jun 08


Glad that folks are discovering this wonderful song.

The original post might be a bit confused, however.

Felicia and I started using a alternate melody for our version of Nasty Nell. Janie and Paul really took to the 'JIm Jones in Botany Bay' melody. Recently we noticed that the melody of the song 'Strike the Bell' fits the lyrics just as well, and we worked up our own 'West Coast' version of the song.

We just do stuff like that. Brigantine and Anne Bonny are mostly the same as originally written -- okay we added a little extra chorus thingy for Anne Bonny.
