Subject: RE: Cheerful Folk Songs
I Wish They'd do it Now
Martin Said to His Man
Drinking songs: John Barleycorn (well, it's cheerful at the end), Landlord Fill the Flowing Bowl, Drink Old England Dry, Whiskey in the Jar and many others
The Fox Hunt (unless you're worried about it not being PC)
The Irish Rover
The Wild Rover
John Blunt
Mairie's Wedding
I like to Rise When the Sun She Rises
Farmer's Boy
On Ilkley Moor Bah t'Hat
Come Write Me Down (as well as some other Copper family songs)
Harbour Le Cou

That's it for now -- just the ones I can think of straight away, more later (if I think of 'em)
