Young Banker

You might hear a rendition of this shortly...



The banker, in this instance, is not a bowler-hatted-commuter to the City of London.
He is a rustic tradesman.
He clears ditches and builds stone walls.
He sports a fine head of hair and shows a pleasing face.

His lace-adorned hat renders him questionably attractive to fair maidens.

Here's the chorus:

Young banker he had such an handsome face
And all around his hat he wore a band of lace
Beside such an handsome head of hair
For my young banker I will go there

(I think some of those 'h's should be aspirated.)

Go for it!

PSM shares the following intelligence:
The Wilsons are a fine group and, in a rare Southern appearance, are booked to do a day-long workshop (on Mining songs & Graeme Miles songs) plus an evening concert at the Lewes Saturday Club on the 21st of July.
You'll find Lewes Arms Folk Club's programme of workshops at LAFC workshops

Thanks, PSM.
That information is now up-front.
