I thought I would bump this thread up again and also mention a book which some of you might be interested in.

The book is "I Shot a Man in Reno: A History of Death by Murder, Suicide, Fire, Flood, Drugs, Disease, and General Misadventure, as Related in Popular Song" and it is by Graeme Thomson

I got a copy yesterday and while having a quick skim through it I was pleased to see the cover of the sheet music for The Mysterious Axman's Jazz reproduced on the frontspiece. Unfortunately there was no mention of any lyrics in the book.
