Martin said to his man
The first Freemen’s Song from Ravenscroft’s Deutromelia. It is one of several drinking songs and is a good example of a lusty old song still going strong. In deference to the oral tradition which has helped keep it alive, the last verse is taken from a present-day singer heard in one of the many folk clubs in Britain where ‘Martin’ is still frequently sung.

from notes by Douglas Wootton 1981
