Song: All Around My Hat

This is Steeleye Spans version of the old song whose pale echo is found in “Around her neck she wore a yellow ribbon.” A lot of British folk songs were re-purposed into “cowboy songs” by expatriates.

Green willow is a symbol of false love.

I’ve discovered a lot of songs that I like on YouTube so I’m stringing them out over successive days.
