The Jolly Carter

I found The Jolly Carter in two BBC schools’ Singing Together books and like it very much. It was broadcast on the Home Service in the late 1950s or early sixties, and in the later sixties, early seventies. Collected by Ernest (Jack) Moeran, in Norfolk, it’s an unusual sort of folk song for junior school children, you may think, or perhaps I’m jumping to the wrong conclusion.
