Child Ballads

About This Book

The Child ballads collection are generally agreed to be one of the most important collections and record of English traditional ballads and folk song. Some can be a bit tiring to read as they date from times when English usage was quite different from today, also some are in various regional dialects which can also make things difficult. They are presented here as they are useful for those researching the origins of popular folk song as many do in fact have their origins here.
