Reinhard Lyr Req: Hunting the Hare (Tom and Barbara Brown) (8) RE: Lyr Req: Hunting the Hare 17 Dec 18


Tom and Barbara Brown's sleeve notes from "Just Another Day ...":

There are a few versions of this classic hare-hunting song; Martin and Shan Graebe recorded one collected by Sabine Baring-Gould on their Dusty Diamonds CD, and we’ve even seen it in print as Somersetshire Hunting Song. This is [Captain] Vickery [of Minehead]’s version [collected by Cecil Sharp on January 13, 1906; VWML CJS2/10/774] —with more hunting-song clichés than you could throw a drag at. Tom sees no purpose in hare hunting—but then he is bald!
