Album All Around My Hat. All Around My Hat Lyrics. Chorus All around my hat I will wear the green willow All around my hat for a twelve-month and a day And if anyone should ask me the reason why I'm wearing it It's all for my true love who's far far away
The biggest selling of all Steeleye Span albums is also their hardest rocking record. They sound like would-be competitors to the Who on the opening bars of "The Wife of Usher's Well," with Bob Johnson's electric guitar grinding out power chords like nobody's business. The vocals have their usual elegance, the harmonies soaring exquisitely, but between the choruses the guitar puts out lots of wattage.
A version popularized by Steeleye Span used the traditional chorus (shown above) and these verse stanzas (from Farewell He): Fare thee well cold winter and fare thee well cold frost Nothing have I gained but my own true love I've lost I'll sing and I'll be merry when occasion I do see He's a false deluding young man, let him go, farewell h. All Around My Hat. Songwriter Nancy McCallion and lead vocalist Catherine Zavala of the American group The Mollys revised the song in a humorous vein

All Around My Hat is a mid 70's album by electric folk band Steeleye Span. I feel that their previous album (Commoners Crown) is one of the best albums they made. Are they able to follow it with an album as impressive? Almost! "Black Jack Davy" has a somewhat standard folk/slow moving vocal melody that goes from Maddy Prior during the verse melody to the men during the chorus. Overall, if you like British folk you're sure to love All Around My Hat. I still have to chuckle a bit when I think about the American folk music that was occurring in the 70's. It's really inferior to the British bands.
