Gedi Lyr Add: British Man of War (23) RE: Lyr Add: British Man of War 21 Sep 09


I've been searching for my copy of this song for some time and by some strange coincidence it turned up yesterday.

Its an old recording on a cassette of an album by a duo called Leonard & Squire, dating back to the mid '70's I should think. They are pretty good with some decent fiddle and mandolin playing, and the song has been updated somewhat with the addition of a verse at the beginning telling of the boredom of a young lad in class who opens his songbook of old songs and comes across this tale of sailors and Men 'O War. It then launches into the song proper. All in all its well done although of course not strictly authentic.
