The Holly and the Ivy (Camborne)
This Camborne version of "The Holly and the Ivy" was collected by Cecil Sharp from Mrs. Hezeltine (aet. 79) of Camborne on May 8, 1913. He also communicated a slightly different version of the words by Tom Miners, a local historian, and a slightly different version of the tune, including a repeated last line, from Mrs. Oliver (aet. 65) of Camborne.
