The Golden Vanity

A ballad that has been in print since the 1600s, Cecil Sharp included a version in English Folk Songs For Schools 1907. I remember seeing it in our school song book in the late 1950s and hoping, in vain, that we’d sing it one day. My recording is a version current in the 1960s folk clubs. The painting is of HMS Royal George 1756.
