This tune pops up in a lot of my research, so I’m collecting up a few things about it.

Notes:

*
I love to sing the rhyme THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN TOSSED UP IN A BASKET and Lillbullero is frequently the tune cited as meant to go with it.  But I heard a couple of others vocals for that rhyme which inspired me to make up my own tune and guitar chords for it.
