GUEST,Alan Lyr Req: I went to Betsy (10) RE: Lyr Req: I went to Betsy 07 Dec 12

Thanks Jim and Mick. I've now found how to look at broadsides in the Bodleian. Unfortunately the only one that scans and fits the verse is 'Sweet Betsy' but the stupid boy dies instead of doing what any red-blooded male should have done - killed the mother, crossed the Atlantic and GONE TO BETSY!
I'm down to just two now, largely thanks to your help: 'Betsy' and 'Nancy'. Is it co-incidence they're both female?
Cheers ~ Alan
