Subject: RE: Roger the Miller (The Grey Mare)
Phil Tanner sings verse 4 complete without cutting any lines, so presumably Kennedy's tune accurately reflects that.

If indeed the version in The Folksongs of Britain and Ireland (1975) was actually collected from Tanner, as I have assumed. Does Kennedy state his source?
