The original recording's Cold And Lonely Hours - Ramble Away by Chapter Three - Ramble Away notes comment:. Here our hero is something of a rake, and the encounter has been related in several broadsides. This latter incomplete text has been collated with a broadside published by Hodge, of Seven Dials, London. Shirley and Dolly Collins recorded this song for a second time in for their album Anthems in Eden.
This version was included in on the anthology Troubadours of British Folk Vol. They noted:. In the more common variants of Young Rambleawaythe song ends with the girl going home to her parents, sadder, wiser and pregnant.
The words were collected by Hammond from Robert Barrett, of Puddletown, in The tune is not Mr. Barrett's, however, it came to us in its present form by mistake, but we liked it and kept it. Martin Carthy commented in their album's sleeve notes:. Norma loves waltzes and so do we. The tune of Rambleaway is more usually associated with a song that I don't like much—called Old Mother Crawley —and it's an absolute peach.
The character himself advertises himself for what he is and yet there is still somebody who falls for it. And, how they fall. You see people like him on Ricki Lake or Oprah Winfrey all the time. The audience boo and hiss and it makes not a ha'porth of difference. For him it's just another advert. Saul Rose had the idea for Valentine Waltz —it's the morris tune, Valentine's Dayslowed right down. Jackie Oates sang Rambleaway in on her eponymous first album, Jackie Oates.

We have combined the words of James Parsons with Sam Fone's melody and added our own interpretation to the mix. As I was a-going to Pocklington Fair In my fine scarlet jacket and everything rare, Enough to 'tice all the maidens away When they set their eyes on young Rambleaway. Rambleaway, Rambleaway, When they set their eyes on young Rambleaway.
Now the very first steps that I took to the fair I saw lovely Nancy a-combing her hair. Devil knows where, devil knows where, I told her I'd ramble the devil knows where.
Before twelve weeks was over and past This pretty young Nancy, she grew sick at last. Her dress wouldn't pin nor her apron strings tie And she longed for the sight of young Rambleaway. When twenty-four weeks they were over and past This pretty young girl she did sicken at last. Her gown wouldn't meet nor her apron strings tie; She longed for the sight of young Rambleaway. Rambleaway, Rambleaway, She longed for the sight of young Rambleaway.
My dad and my mother have both come from home. So come all you young ladies, take a warning by me, When courting the boys, don't be easy and free. Just dress yourselves up as you step out to pay But take care if you meet with young Rambleaway. Come all you young maidens wherever you be, When you're courting fellows don't make yourself free. For if you do you'll rue the sad day You met with the likes of young High School Teacher (Keys) - Lisa Versach - High School Teacher. Rambleaway, Rambleaway, You met with the likes of young Rambleaway.
As I was Gunshy - Backseat Romeo - Wanna Take A Ride to Derry Down Fair With my neat scarlet cloak and everything rare, In order to Dual Well - Effed - Fireworks all the buxom and gay Who wished for to go with young Rambleaway.
Rambleaway, Who wished for to go with young Rambleaway. The very first steps I put into the fair I spied pretty Nancy a-combing her hair. As I was a-walking that night in the dark I took pretty Nancy to be my sweetheart. Rambleaway, Ain't you the young man that's called Rambleaway? So come all you young maidens where'er you may be, From this jolly bank wit I'll have you go free; My hat, cap and feathers, my dear, you shall wear And a bunch of blue ribbons to tie up your hair, Tie up your hair, And a bunch of blue ribbons to tie up your hair.
