Notes
Chris Wildridge - The songs collected from Mrs. Parks are indexed by the English Folk Dance and Song Society in the Gardiner Collection. However, the notes on the manuscripts say, "Sung by Mrs Park [aged 74], Trowbridge, Wiltshire, noted by Ernest Blake, Esq., February 1906, and communicated by Dr. George B Gardiner, the text of the song is missing from the file.

Transcribed and edited by Chris Wildridge, 2008
