So should it have a Roud Number? I've no idea. Steve has to make the decision. Rather him than me. Down in the fields appeared on a 78rpm record. It's still on YouTube I think. While we're at it so did Buttercup Joe, but that is much older and was collected by Gardiner, however it is very probably early music hall. Sung by Mr. Garratt, who ever he was. It's in the Silver Medal song book, along with 'Out in the Green fields' still sung in Beaminster Dorset within the last decade. Roud number or not? Figure that one out! I can't.
