Notes

Learned by Jim Thomas and Tom Miners from Miss J. Kelynack of Troon in 1924
Cornish Translation: E.G.Retallick Hooper (1966), Standard Written Form: Mick Paynter (2021)
This version from the singing of Tavas (Crysten Truran & Lester Fudge): tour of Welsh Speaking Clubs, North Wales February 1978.

The lyrics are likely to have come from a Broadside Ballad and adapted to a local tune. The Green cockade was sometimes worn by Irish regiments.
