G'day Joybell,

As you have, inter alia, "... sung it unaccompanied, with guitar ... "
the Misses ( ... and Colonel ...) Grey story is a great defence against nigglers claiming that it's a "bloke's song" and / or that guitar is "too modern" for its period!

(I do maintain that the fragile guitar of the early / mid 1800s was happier in the moister coastal areas ... but several do apppear in accounts and songs - albeit, often already 'cracked'!

Regard(les)s

BobB
