Abby Sale Recitations Anyone? (197* d) RE: Yarn of the "Nancy Bell" 25 Oct 06

Just learned of this. Great song.

Been seeking a tune - is there any knowledge if Gilbert had any particular one in mind?

Dave or Deckman, have you any way to let me know the tune you may have? Or anyone other?

On search I seemed to find a Canadian record but I'm not sure.

FYI, seems Gilbert fiddled wit the text a bit anyway, over time - this was reprinted many times. Here's a link to an 1898 version with his illustrations.
