RHOSILI: BRANDY'S SONG


(Information is very sketchy here, but this song, collected from Mrs B Richards, is noted in the National Trust centre at Rhosili. Brandy was the name of the local Horse's Head. The song is notable because it bears no relation to the Horse's Head song as it exists everywhere else on Gower.)


Come open wide to us your door
We've come over field and ditch and moor
To wish you joy this Christmastide
And eat your pudding by your leave
As we have done in years gone by
And hope to do until we die.
Come, Mrs ------, open your door
And let us have some food.
For the weather is cold and we must have more.
