Thread Name: Lyr Req: Rory Get Your Dory (Eddie LeGere)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Rory get the dory... Song or ditty?
There MIGHT be some relevant information in Dictionary of Newfoundland English by George Morley Story, W. J. Kirwin, John David Allison Widdowson (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1990). At least that book keeps coming up when I search for "rory, dory, herring" and some other words from the songóbut it's a recent book, under copyright, and Google Books doesn't allow a preview of the relevant pages. I'd look around pages 732-733.
