Trelawney or The Song Of The Western Men. Most people think that this song refers to Bishop Trelawney who was locked up in the Tower of London in 1688 by King James. However, Bishop Trelawney's grandfather also did time in the Tower courtesy of Charles I. Nothing but trouble them Trelawney's! Here's an example of a song still in use today. Should you go to a Cornish rugby match you might well hear a raucous rendering.
