There is a Tavern in the Town
Last updated: 06.05.20
There is a Tavern in the Town is a fine old drinking song known to all English-speaking peoples. It was sang at my primary school, St. Stephen's Junior School back in the late 1940's. Immensely popular, a quick check reveals that I have versions of it in:
  1. 101 Pub Favourites for Buskers (G-major)
  2. Daily Express Community Song Book (C-major)
  3. Great Cockney Songs Vol. 1 (C-major)
  4. Lieder, Songs und Gospels 2 (A-major)
  5. Regina Song Album No. 17 (D-major)
  6. Songs and Dances of England (D-major)

This song is itherefore as a must ncluded in our compilation We're Only Here For The Beer! - Light (D-major) by Dr. Rosteck and myself.
