Brian Peters: ‘All Around My Hat’.

Steeleye Span had a big hit with this song in the 1970s. Turns out they actually combined the chorus and tune to ‘All Around My Hat’ with the verses of another song called ‘Farewell She’. This version by Brian Peters is closer to the older forms of the song, although he also did some merging with other ballads (see the history at ‘Mainly Norfolk‘).
