Thread Name: Origin: Billy Don't You Weep for Me (Nic Jones?)
Subject: 'Billy don't you weep for me'. Info req'
Hi, Can anyone tell me where Nic Jones sourced the song 'Billy don't you weep for me'or anything about it? It is on his FROM THE DEVIL A STRANGER LP. In it it refers to Jack Sheppard: is this the famous 18th century thief, or an actor or playwright? Any help very welcome. Thank you. David
