History is reflected in the words of folk songs sung by some of our folk bands
Yo Ho Ho - - Fifteen men on a dead man's chest - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum - Drink and the devil had done for the rest - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. - The mate was fixed by the bosun's pike - The bosun brained with a marlinspike - And cookey's throat was marked belike - It had been gripped by fingers ten; - And there they lay, all good dead men - Like break o'day in a boozing ken - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. - 2. Fifteen men of the whole ship's list - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! - Dead and be damned and the rest gone whist! - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! - - - he skipper lay with his nob in gore - Where the scullion's axe his cheek had shore - And the scullion he was stabbed times four - And there they lay, and the soggy skies - Dripped down in up-staring eyes - In murk sunset and foul sunrise - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. - - 3. Fifteen men of 'em stiff and stark - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! - Ten of the crew had the murder mark! - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! - Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead - Or a yawing hole in a battered head - And the scuppers' glut with a rotting red - And there they lay, aye, damn my eyes - Looking up at paradise - All souls bound just contrawise - Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
What has been said about Folk Bands.
A sample of what has been written about folk bands. A Quotation:-
The gentlemen in private meeting . . . played three, four and five parts with viols. . . and they esteemed a violin to be an instrument only belonging to a common fiddler, and could not endure that it should come among them for fear of making their meetings to be vain and fiddling. ~ Anthony Wood
