Thread Name: A Liverpool Folk Song a Week
Subject: RE: A Liverpool Folk Song a Week
I have a very old book called "Lancashire Stories." and there's either a poem or song in it called.....
"The Liverpool Tragedy or, A warning to disobedient children and covetous parents ; showing how one John Fuller, left his father's house to go to sea against his will and was shipwrecked but preserved on a rock; how he was fetched by the ship's boat and put ashore at Bengal, where he married; how he returned home, when he, not informing his parents who he was, they murdered him for the sake of his gold; with their tragic end."
   It's set into five parts an I'm sure must have coursed quite a stir when it came out.Could even be a "Catchpenny." !!

As Aye,

Phil.
