"I learned it from a performance by Martin Carthy on the Folk Britannia programme, it took Ian and I a while to be able to play together ok, because the guitar and vocals interlocked so tightly and I needed the guitar as a scaffold, in a way. But now when we do it live, he just does some chords mainly to punctuate the beginning of a verse, but here I sing it unaccompanied and I'm comfortable with doing that now. It was one of the first traditional songs we found. It's basically a song about a woman bawling out the coppers in the middle of the street because they've got her man for a paltry crime of stealing from a rich man."
