Well, Jon hasn't sent me the stuff so I have transcribed the words.

Jon, as you can hear from the track is a wonderful, young guitarist.

He has just taken the jump and turned professional.

If you would like to book him, and I suggest you do, an excellent evening guaranteed, pm me and I will give you a contact number.

Jacky Tar

Jacky Tar one day out walking,
He's heard a squire and the lady talking.
Jack heard him to the lady say
"Tonight with you, I mean to lay"
With my in my own and my good lac-a- daisy
Righ fol de diddle, Right fol de day

"Just tie a string all round your finger
Let the other end dangle all from your window,
Then I'll come by and pull on the string
You come down and you'll let me in,
With my in my own and my good lac-a- daisy
Righ fol de diddle, Right fol de day

"Damn me", says Jack, "Why don't I venture,
To see if a poor sailor can't win such a treasure."
So he's gone by and pulled on the string
And she's came down and she let him in
With my in my own and my good lac-a- daisy
Righ fol de diddle, Right fol de day

The squire came by, in such a fashion,
He cursed all women throughout the nation,
For he's got there, no string he's found
Behold, his hopes were dashed to the ground
With my in my own and my good lac-a- daisy
Righ fol de diddle, Right fol de day

The sun arose the very next morning,
And the lady arose and started screaming
For there lay Jack in his tarry shirt
And behold, his face all covered with dirt
With my in my own and my good lac-a- daisy
Righ fol de diddle, Right fol de day

"How came you here you tarry sailor?
Have you broken in to steal my treasure?"
"Oh no," says Jack, "I pulled on the string
You came down and let me in"
With my in my own and my good lac-a- daisy
Righ fol de diddle, Right fol de day

Well, he says, "I beg your pardon"
But I'll steal off quiet so no one shall see me."
"Oh no!" she says, "Don't you go far
For I never will part from my little Jacky Tar
With my in my own and my good lac-a- daisy
Righ fol de diddle, Right fol de day

I have no details of how Jon came by this song.

Regards, now we can put this to bed
