Tim Chesterton lost verse, Scarborough Fair (25) RE: lost verse, Scarborough Fair 24 Mar 11


Hmm - Richard Hutton must have sung two variants to the collectors, because that one is slightly different from the one published in 'The Crystal Spring' - recognisably the same tune, but with some differences. I'm assuming the last line is repeated as there are more lines of music than of text? I notice that one was sung by Hutton on July 14th; the variant in 'The Crystal Spring' was sung on July 16th.

Mysha, the melody Brian give is very close to the one I use, but not exact. I'll see if I can scan the version I have in the next day or two and send it to you.
