50 folk songs compiled by Geoffrey Brace. The song categories are: ballads, comic songs, love songs, songs of affection, songs of work and drink and songs from the stage.
It is a well produced song book in a pocket format. The all melodies have guitar chords and there are footnotes to each song.
My comments:
I picked this book up in a Malvern second-hand book shop whilst on holiday in England in 1992. It cost me a princely £ 2.50. It is a very interesting collection of quite different pieces. This is the source for:
  1. Ballinderry
  2. On a British Submarine
  3. The Calton Weaver (Nancy Whisky)
  4. Fill Her Up!
  5. The Golden Wheat
  6. I once went a-courting
  7. Mrs Hooligan's Christmas Cake
  8. Mrs McGrath
  9. Nellie Gray
  10. The Titanic
  11. Turpin Hero
  12. Whaling in Greenland
