Thread Name: Lyr Req: Rory Get Your Dory (Eddie LeGere)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Rory get the dory... Song or ditty?
I would be curious to see how the date of publication of Eddy LeGere's song corresponds with the time-periods in which it is implied the song was current in the several texts mentioned in the posts above. Without know anything about how the man operated, we should reserve the possibility that he re-worked an existing ditty or rhyme. On the other hand, any of those other writers could have assumed that a relatively recent song came from timeless tradition.

Back to meditation.
