So what of the initials given at the end of the song as recorded by Burnett and Rutherford? We just listened to that recording. The last verse is as given above by Masato.

"This song was composed in the cloudy West
By a man you may never have seen,
I'll tell you his name but it is not in full,
His initials are J.R.G."

Actually we thought it sounded more like "J.R.D." but either way it's a bit odd. Cheers, Joy
