Notes on The Brisk Young Bachelor



This is #101 in Sharp's Folk Songs from Somerset series (the fourth). The words and the air were taken from Mr. Robert Parish, of Exford.

Sharp states that he has supplemented the words supplied with some from another source (as they were incomplete).

Karpeles (1987)KCS has a version of this song apparently taken from the same source (p141). However the text differs slightly in a few places.
